Fishing in the Golden Horn, Istanbul


Istanbul, Turkey, 22" x 15".

A view across the Golden Horn, a major waterway which leads into the Bosphorus in Istanbul.  On the opposite side are the mosques and minarets surrounding the covered bazaar and shopping areas.  The main bridge over the Golden Horn is even more popular for fishing with hundreds of rods leaning over the sides.  The smoke effect was done when everything was dry.  A little clear water was lightly dropped onto the smoke area.  Then a thickish mixture of white gouache plus cobalt blue was quickly and randomly added in.

Nice Painting Tim,can't get my darks as dark as yours?

Roger - I use tiny bit of neutral tint with a dominant colour like U Blue

Nebe Art

Tim, how did you manage to paint the light reflections? Masking fluid?

Tim Wilmot

nebe - use the side of a big mop brush on rough paper


The protagonist of all the paintings of Tim is light.
The shadow supports landscape architecture. Beautiful.

Thank you Ricardo! I agree with you about shadows.
