The Old Plovdiv - Autumn Sun by raysheaf The Old Plovdiv - Autumn Sun by raysheaf
Acrylic colors on canvas, 60X50cm. This landscape is from the old part of Plovdiv, the second city of Bulgaria.

To whom is interesting - the whole architectural complex is situated on a hill. The city was built on 7 hills by the Philip II of Macedon, the father of Alexander the Great. Next the Romans liked it a lot due to the hills, there is 2 amphitheaters and many ruins from them. Now only 4 hills left. The buildings I paint are since the Ottoman slavery period (1396-1878). Of course many restorations succeeded.

Ah, again, I love it! The perspective is great in this picture!

I'm rather jealous that you live in a place where you can find great architecture to paint.

Thanks a lot for the nice words! Could I recommend you some tutorials of mine. [link] Here although about fractals, you'll find a very good theoretic part about perspective and shading objects, that applies to classic art as well. And [link] here you'll find some simple steps how to present your finished artwork to give it more impact.

Beautiful painting. It's something that I would hang on my wall, and that says a lot because I'm pretty particular about my walls. :D
