New Painting: “Lupita Aya Sofya”
“Lupita Aya Sofya” has been months in the making and it gives me such joy to see it all finished. This painting features three sets of color combinations, more than my usual two, making it extra bright.
I also added a layer of shimmery gold to each color in the robe & halo, and around the flower petals in the background as well. I love how the gold makes the painting sparkle in the light.
This painting was inspired by the mosaics in the Aya Sofya (Hagia Sophia) in Istanbul, Turkey. For more background on the mosaics, check out my blog post from July 30th.
