Back to the Studio- Nocturnes

In class we have to pick something that we can paint as a night scene= nocturne.

I choose the interior of the tandoor maker’s shop. It is not at night per se, but it is the heavily shadowed interior, and I made a few changes- such as removing the rope and the guys reading the newspaper.

A tandoor is a large, clay oven. Makes delicious bread, chicken, fish…well everything tastes better coming out of a tandoor.

    I’ve never actually seen one of these clay ovens. How delightfully evocative your painting is.
