If one is courious enough, looking at a historical building or interesting edifice from the past as a whole is not enough
Buildings in Malta especially baroque, contain intricate shapes and carvings in limestone like in fountains, balcony supports and other prominences.
The following is a set of paintings done in near monochrome, of this kind of sculpture close-up.
I made it a point to use only Unbleached Titanium with black for shadows and white for highlights.
Though this was a phase in my painting career, who knows, maybe in future I'll get the urge to paint some more of these sculptures.
