Fatih District, Istanbul


Landscape Watercolour of Istanbul, 15" x 11" on Saunders Waterford Rough Paper 140 lbs

Fatih district in Istanbul, away from the typical tourist routes. The Fatih area is home to the main mosques and the Grand Covered Bazaar. My subject was a typical scene of a street in Fatih looking down towards the Bosphorous. I was probably most pleased about the job on the car of all things and left it not too overworked. The danger is you start painting in detail on windscreens and then wheels and it all ends up looking too false.
