A few years ago I took this picture of this very interesting building in Portugal. What got my attention was the old ship in the top corner. Now maybe it has something to do with Christopher Columbis I realy don't know but I doubt is it the just for fun. 8" x 10" clayboard.....Victor

Victor, you architectural drawing skills are incerdible. I still can't figure out how you do such splendid work on scratchboard.

I love the perspective.

Mlelevier...Thank you so much...Don't try to figure it out as I can't myself !! All that I know is I have a passion for perspective. A piece of string and a thumb tack work well for me. Plus I make my own scratching tools.

Karen...Thank you ...so do I.

I agree, your architectural renderings are just gorgeous in their crispness and detail. The total effect is very appealing. Thumbtack and string? gotta remember that.
The success you have in getting the intricacies of architecture encourages me to do one of Grand Canyon I've been thinking about, not architecture, but intricate.
