Full Sheet(50x70cm) Hahnemuehle Britannia 300gms+Schmincke colors.
A combination of imagination,ref photos I took and myself being a model for the front character.
This painting began with photo I took at the Bodrum food bazaar.The fat man with the hat looked interesting and I wanted to do a painting of him.
This is how this painting evolved from this photo from a market scene to something else in a full sheet.
the other two are 1/2 sheet size except the last one which is full sheet.

These are based on a slide I took about 35 years ago during a boat ride along the Golden Horn (Haliç as we call it).It was full of fascinating sights of shipyards, every imaginable type of old and new boats and ships etc.
