zavareh Grand Mosque .... ورود به مسجد جامع زواره

one of the things i like in painting is contrast of dark and light and cool and warm .
all these contrasts are the key factors in Iranian cities in deserts.
i like the architecture of these cities, mosques, tall walls and cool shadows in the alleys, Qanats, in these places you can feel the essence of water and coolness of it ...
you like to let your bare foot stay calm in going water ...

Zavareh is a city based in the center of Iran, in deserts and here you can find one of the mosques dates back to Saljuk-era.
for this painting i choose this mosque and i try to replicate the essence of what an entrance means for this mosque, which sharp contrast of sun beams and cool shadow in the entrance.
you can find more about this city and mosque from wikipedia.
