Hello there😊. Today is Good Friday and an auspicious day. I thought I would share this painting that I did. I love painting buildings despite my difficulty in getting my perspectives right🤣. Nevertheless, I decided a test it out again. In art, the theory teaches us one point, two, three, and many more points of perspective. But they are all very confusing. Then I happened to watch a tutorial where the artist just used his ruler or a pencil on the painting to check out the angles as a rough guide. I tried that method for this painting. Voila, though there are some mistakes, as one of my friends pointed out, overall, I am happy😆😆.
I love cobbled streets, and I am wondering why🤔. This painting evoked memories of old European roads for some of my readers. For Chiam, it prompted our own Padungan Street. However, the cobbled road was a later addition during one of the renovations to create an ambience of old streets. Nevertheless, the place is gentrified, with tons of cafes and restaurants. Cobblestones have come a long way from being used in ancient European villages to more upmarket areas in recent years. It adds a warm nostalgia to any place.
In the comment section, let me know your thoughts on cobblestones or anything else about the above painting😊🙏.
