Cold Constantinople stages 1 and 2

As I enjoyed painting the last snow scene I thought I would do another, this time more architectural so I thought of doing a painting of Istanbul in Winter. Hagia Sophia is at the top of the picture and then I have taken various buildings in the area and redrawn them in a nice sweep through the composition to lead up to the Byzantine church turned into a mosque by the Ottomans. This painting will again be in muted colours concentrating on the patterns made by the snow on the rooftops and hopefully will be nice and moody!
Both stages were painted with a mix of Burnt Sienna and Winsor Violet thinned with Liquin, Lukas Number 5 medium and turpentine using a thin bristle brush in Stage 1 and a flat brush in Stage 2.
