Kingdom Tower, Riyadh

Here's my current project, which has been taking forever to complete. In this painting, two F-15s of the Royal Saudi Air Force are climbing above Riyadh, after flying through the eye of Kingdom Tower.

Quite a bit of detail is still lacking, but I think this gives you a pretty good idea of what I've been up to.

That's pretty amazing!

Thanks, Keith. I'm afraid it still looks kind of cartoonish, and I hope that more details will change that. It's good to hear from you.

Nice job, Senator :))

It looks as if the tower would be a little bit floating above the surface. But it can be caused by my computer screen, of course.

I'd like to ask you if you purpose to paint a picture about the desert photo that you posted on 10th April?

Hello Hangyakutya! Yes, I need to include some ground reflections along the bottom of the tower to join it to the ground. That's one of the things I'm working on right now.

I do intend to paint from the desert photo I posted on 10 April. Maybe I'll do that next. Thanks for reminding me.
