Muristan St Old City Jerusalem


Jerusalem, Israel, 15" x 11".

A side street in the Old City area of Jerusalem.  Mainly souvenir shops and cafes here with their curved blinds (tricky to get right and the perspective).  Again, I am trying to connect all the shapes with some deep shadows, shadows which are cooler at the bottom with a touch of cobalt blue.  Also in this painting I did a bit of scraping out with the sharp end of a nail file.  You have to scrape when the paint is still moist and timing is important - too early and the gap you made closes out, too late and you damage the surface of the paper.
