Theleme


A view on the Theleme building in Sophia Antipolis.
It's an interesting architecture and my drawing doesn't really show a lot of it, but after a few discarded drawings (again), this one suddenly seemed to know better than myself what I was looking for...
(Anyone interested in architecture? I just found this link where the building is presented.)

I really like the marks and brush work in this, Werner. Also, appreciate the link to the actual building. I just realized that the drawing I posted today on my sketch blog reminds me a bit of your buildings....

Werner said...

Thank you Suzanne! Yes, I see which sketch you mean. Interesting little windows - hm, they are part of the building reflected in the glass front, aren't they?

Suzanne said...

Let's see... Now that I look at it again, the little windows you might be referring to are really the tops of display cases in the shop. The entire elevation is (mostly) windows divided by bars of metal. You're really looking through glass. I didn't put in any reflections though I can see now how those tops of cases could look like reflections.
