The Cloud Palace

A companion piece to "Al Zimbra", this is another small painting centred around sky and clouds. In addition to changing it's title from "Palace of the Sky Vizier" I also changed my mind about the colours after the tonal underpainting and changed from warm colours like the earlier painting to more of a yellow/violet complementary palette with a blue/green sky. I also changed my mind at the "drawing" stage when I changed from a floating city to a more Arabian Nights Eastern palace although I have kept the details a bit more indistinct to be able to merge with the cloud.
This is another small painting that I intend to take to IX in mid-October. Oil on Winsor & Newton Smooth Canvas 16" x 12".
There is a step-by-step progress through this painting in previous posts on this blog.
