The big white Taj Mahal is a great building to see, but not such a pleasure to draw. It’s just plain white. Period.
But it is surrounded by other colourful buildings like this red mosque, overlooking the river in the back of the Taj Mahal. On the horizon you can see the red fort, that’s where the maharadja (who built the Taj Mahal for his beloved wife) was imprisoned by his own son for the remainder of his life… with only a view to the landmark he initiated. But he was lucky, his son killed all the other sons and uncles… Those were the times.
