Palace of the Sky Vizier - stages 1 & 2

Stage 1
A companion piece to "Al Zimbra", this is another small painting centred around sky and clouds. It was originally conceived to be in warm colours like the earlier painting but I changed my mind after the tonal underpainting and chose more of a Yellow/ Violet complementary palette although there is a fair amount of blue too.
I changed my mind too at the "drawing" stage when I changed it from a city to an Eastern Palace so that it was more Arabian Nights than sci fi as it could have looked.
I am again working on Winsor & Newton Smooth Cotton Canvas as the picture is quite small, 16" x 12".
The first stage was "drawn" up with a small bristle brush using a mix of Burnt Sienna and Winsor Violet mixed with Liquin. The second stage was the same paint mix thinned with turpentine and applied with a rag.
