Jantar Mantar Staircase
Painting - Oil On Stretched Canvas
रूहों का मकां, न तेरा न मेरा
एक पल की रात
एक पल का सवेरा...
This house of spirits, neither yours, nor mine
temporary days and temporary nights...

This painting was done in Oil on stretched canvas (24 x 36") from a photograph that I took while my visit to Jantar Mantar in Lucknow, India. This painting was done in the style of a contemporary artist... Jon Singer Sargent! I love the perspective of depth and the feeling of being old in this painting.
This painting of mine was done on a stretched canvas (24 x 36") in a painterly style of John Singer Sargent. A funny incident I remember while I was painting this... This painting was done as one of projects in my intermediate painting class at the community college. We had to make a painting based on and in style of works of one of contemporary artists. I had several options from the photographs I had taken and I had printed photographs in my portfolio. Along side with the photographs that I had taken, I also had prints of some of John Singer Sargent's paintings that I printed with my archival printer. My teacher was looking into my portfolio, and when he looked at the picture that I made this painting from, he thought it was a print of John Singer Sargent's painting. When I told him that no, it is a print of the photograph that I took, so we had to laugh and I ended up painting this painting.
