Muradiye, Bursa, 2


Watercolour of Bursa, Turkey, 15" x 11", on Saunders Waterford Rough 300gms.

Somehow, a Turkish scene always looks complete with a mosque and minaret breaking the skyline.  Here's a sketch of the old part of Bursa, Muradiye.  I think the distant white figure was almost an accident - a patch of paper left unpainted on the first wash, and then made into a figure with subsequent washes.  Minarets are always a challenge to get right - the symmetrical top, the rounded gallery and sometime a little wider at the base.
