I saw this building structure on a roof top of a building. I felt that the structure was quite nice. I decided to paint a small painting with this idea. Here is the result of the painting. Could any one let me know this style of building structure style or design comes from which country?

I started this painting in May. I worked on it slowly from time to time. These few day, I continued working on it and have an intention to complete it. I am happy that I have completed it. Here is the photo of the painting.

I decided to work out a painting with reference to the photos that I have taken at Dhammanusari Day Retreat at Sri Lankaramaya Buddhist Temple on 9 August 2009. I treated this painting as an exercise for sharpening formal and technical skills and artistic perception. Here is the result of my working, a unique representational painting.
