I painted this one just for fun, and I love the look of these temples, I tried to put it in the ?middle of nowhere? to get a somewhat lonely feeling. I tried to work with bounce lights a lot, making the inside of the roof light up a bit, as if the ground under it had some sunlight on it. Looking at pictures of real temples, I found the part that ?holds up? the roof to be very complex, and it was hard to paint. I think I like these structures because they are so different from the buildings where I live.
