torre belem, lisboa

    Newer Older

    Back from Lisbon! Back from London! Lots and lots of scanning to do... but not yet. First we rest for five minutes.

    In the meantime, here is a drawing I did on the day before the Symposium of the famous Torre Belem, one of Lisbon's most famous landmarks. I sketched it in the late afternoon while in the Belem district with Jason Das from Brooklyn. It was pretty windy down there by the Tagus.

      Great sketch! I like the way you have drawn a slight curvature of the earth along the horizon line.
