Ayasofya


 My recent painting "Ayasofya" has just been bought by the same person that bought a previous Istanbul painting "Cold Constantinople"

I was trying something Tonalist with Ayasofya basing it around a blue/green - red/orange colour complementary. In the background is the Byzantine Hagia Sophia Church that was made into a Mosque after the Ottoman conquest. It remained a mosque until Ataturk ruled over Turkey when it became a museum but has recently been returned to functioning as a mosque.

Oil on linen 22" x 16".

There is a short progress through this painting in earlier posts on this blog.
