Back in Cordoba, this time inside the Mezquita. The first sketch is an attempt to describe the famous forest of columns, mostly inhabited by tourists; as the columns recede in all directions it feels slightly like being in an Escher drawing or a hall of mirrors. Then there’s a collection of carved stone faces on a tomb. And finally some very fast drawings of visitors photographing the lofty nave (incongruously inserted into the mosque in the C16th); they’d walk in, point a device, shoot, and leave, all in about 30 seconds, job done!
Pigma brown/sepia pen, Lexington grey in fountain pen and water-brush, Noodlers Brown 41 in water-brush, watercolour, all A5 – 20-30 mins each
lol Love that drawing of the photographing tourists! That´s one of the great things about being a sketcher – you get to spend a bit of time at a place and really experience it. Of course, we may not tic off as many sights on the must-see list.
Ha! Quality not quantity when it comes to sightseeing…
