Amour Temple

The Amour Temple from the Palace of Versailles. Saw a photo of this at the start of the week, and thought it was beautiful and had to draw it (and will do a painting of this as well). Done for my gorgeous wife.

A bit freer than my usual style

Re: Amour Temple

This is beautiful and answers a few questions I have about shading with lines.

Re: Amour Temple

Nice naturalistic drawing Scott, you've handle the myriad of ellipses pretty well!.... such a challenge!

Re: Amour Temple

Thanks for the comments guys,

most of the ellipses are okay, but the 2nd last one at the top of the roof isn't rounded enough. I tried to fix it, but just made it look thicker. If you take the top of the line at the centre, and the bottom of the line at the edge of the curve (if that makes sense) - then it's okay. Should have tipp-ex'd it out :-) That's what I get for drawing straight in pen, and not doing a pencil drawing first.

I'm doing a A4 canvas of it in acrylic (which isn't going very well at the mo, but plenty of time to "fix"), which I'll post in the acrylic section when I'm done
