Ceremony at Tibetan Stupa

This is a plein air I did in August, of a "stupa" about two miles from my house. It belongs to a Tibetan Buddhist group and they were having some kind of ceremony. I finally touched up a few things today (mainly had to straighten it's "hat", on it's big bald dome), so here it is for C & C. It is oils, 9x12.



Thanks, Jane

Re: Ceremony at Tibetan Stupa

I really like the contrast of the brightly colored figures with the desaturated field in the forground. Nice simplification, just basic shapes but it reads as people quite well.

Re: Ceremony at Tibetan Stupa

I like it. Great composition, sir. I think it has great color. The only suggestion would be to vary the paint strokes a little more on the next one. The trees and several other spots all have the same look and size. The lit side of the building could have been pushed up a few levels to really play up the light.

Great painting sir. It reminds me of Frank Gardner's art and thats saying something!

Hey, I like the drama of the conrast between the white dome and the boiling grey clouds.
