Fish Market Uskudar, Istanbul


Watercolour 15" x 11" on Bockingford paper 300g

Just as you get off the ferry at Uskudar on the asian side of Istanbul is a wonderful fish market (Balikcilar Carsisi in Turkish) located in a dark tunnel going through the middle of a large building.  You could almost miss it as you walk by, but your eyes are caught by some brightly lit stalls showing the fresh catch of the day.  The main challenge with this painting was the curved ribs of the roof support and the decision to either not bother with the detail or concentrate on the perspective. I think I sat on the fence on that one.
