Esh Hatora

This is for Virtual Paintout, May, 2012 Jerusalem Israel challenge. It's oil with palette knife on 10x12 canvas panel.

This is my second submission to this month's Virtual Paintout. My first submission was a darker work, so I decided my second one would be the opposite, brighter. This scene outside the Esh Hatora World Center at the Jewish Quarter had nice light and dark contrast. (ref)  I heightened the color by using the orange vs blue complimentary color scheme and warm light vs cool shadow. Using palette knives  gave more interest and texture to this straight forward composition.
