Tradional Indian Lantern

11.5" x 5.5"
watercolor on 140 lb coldpress watercolor paper

This is a traditional Indian Lantern (diya) that is lit before God everyday while offering prayers.   Its generally made out of bronze.  Thought of painting it today.  Was a real struggle to introduce the glow as well as the color of the bronze.  Nevertheless I thoroughly enjoyed painting it.
