Trying something new at my art class, I painted a triptych, not the  gorgeous religious ones you find in Russian and Greek Orthodox
ecuador 418churches like the example on the left.
Though the more I look at the more I want to do something like that.
Inspiration is everywhere, you just have to look, don’t you?
Back to the subject at hand.

I started with this photograph that I took of el Parque Arquelógico de Pumapungo, Cuenca.  It’s a little busy so with Greenwood’s guidance, I simplified it and stretched it out.
Here are my three paintings, first as individual separate renderings and last as a triptych.
