Thank you very much!
About the composition
This winter was, and still is very long and cold in Canada. We had since December constant -20 to -30 degrees Celsius, which did feel like it is never going to end.
Luckily it does eventually get better. And here I am, outside on the first sunny day above zero degrees in front of the Parliament building in Ottawa taking pictures. I like to look at it as if it is a king's palace from the old times. It is really a beautiful architectural marvel with a big, cozy fireplace just beyond the gates.
After exploring many views and angles, I fell in love with this composition which capture the entrance gates, pillars, and the vanishing prospective along the street. I really hope you will enjoy capturing it in your art.
Please send your paintings by April 29, 2015. The next challenge will be posted on April 30, 2015.
Wishing you very happy painting!
