Notre Dame
 
This is a watercolour I did this afternoon, memorialising the tragedy of the Cathedral of Notre Dame fire. As an architect and as an artist it really struck a chord.

My source image was something I saw on a video on Global News, when the camera turned to the altar, and the cross was still standing, smoke all around, and the light which was so theatrical and surreal.

your work is a masterpiece,
it hits a lot, transmits strong emotions

it's always hard to look at distruction, but painting it can bring back memories.

What a beautiful yet tragic scene. You've captured the destruction and the beauty of that moment. Well done!
