The Palace of Vision

I've always been fond of fantastic cities and architecture, so I never get tired of doing illustrations of them. This one presented me with some technical difficulties, as the board I painted it on was not absorbent and my paint just slid around on the surface. I was able to use that to my advantage to create interesting textures. This bit of "visionary" art uses Indian architectural models. Maybe it's a city in Heaven, or in one of the many layers of Gnostic imaginal reality. Ink and acrylic watercolor, 9" x 12", painted in March 1999.
