Monument, Taj Mahal at sunset, by Elaine (jaguarish)

Another momument sketch based on a photo, of the Taj Mahal.  It's from a Creative Commons photo that I found in Wikipedia.  I love the dramatic sunset lighting.


  1. Absolutely gorgeous! Love the orange sunset! You did it with lovely thin lines for the buildings! Fantastic!!

  2. Thanks, Linda and Lynn. I was in the mood for a sunset and didn't even realise it until I saw the photo reference! It sure was fun making up my wash of yellow and gradually tinting it more and more orange. The darkest colour at the bottom is from my latest acquisition, "Indian Red Deep" (a special Australian landscape colour from Winsor & Newton).

  3. Elaine, I love the colors you selected for this!!! Love it!
