I decided to take up this challenge because I want to put this image into my book on sights in Mauritius.
We took hundreds of photos while we were travelling through Mauritius to get enough material to use as reference to paint. This colorful temple caught my eye. We stopped in a paid car park where a local carguard wanted to exhort money from us. RS 150 for two hours. I just smelled a rat. We ended up parking in the official paid parking lot for RS 80 for 4 hour parking. I managed to take a quick picture of the temple.
It took me 4 days to paint this A3 size painting. Will I recover my time in money on this painting? Probably not. But I wanted to paint it because I love color and my paintings must have color. So I did it. I added a setting sun with rays to tie up a vanishing point on the painting. It works well. This will be a good investment because I might not do another painting like this again
We retain thte right to make further prints from this original artwork and market such on this website at tradeshows and exhibitions.
