This painting was commissioned as a Christmas gift. The recipient took the photo while on vacation in China, and I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to paint it. I am so drawn to structures like this, although it was definitely a challenge!
I painted most of this painting from a blurred image so I wouldn't become too overwhelmed in the details. Later I went back and added in the individual posts and rails; this was so helpful. I will have to say that it is paintings like this that help grow one's confidence and push us as artists.
