Two views of Qutub Minar, Delhi

In the series Delhi and its monuments come the twin paintings of Qutub Minar, one of the notable landmarks of Delhi. I had sprinkled salt in both the paintings to get some texture, usually a trick to depict snow in watercolour. Here are the paintings:

 Here is some info about the Qutab Minar:
Qutab Minar is among the tallest and famous towers in the world. The minaret is 234 feet high and the highest individual tower in the world. Other towers in the world are the Great Pagoda in Pekin, China and the Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy but these towers are not as high as the Qutab Minar in Delhi. The tall minaret was constructed in 1192 by Qutab-ud-din Aibak, and later completed by his successor Iltutmish. The soaring conical tower is an exquisite example of Indo-Islamic Afghan architecture.

Thanks for viewing, have a nice day!
