A Taste of Paris…
A Taste of Paris?; not literally…but it is a main landmark of Paris, France. Can you guess what it is? If you guessed the Eiffel Tower then you are correct! A couple of days ago I was wondering what I should draw and an idea popped into my head. Why not draw a tall building structure? So I made up my mind; I was going to draw the Eiffel Tower. The Eiffel Tower is a very detailed and complex building. With much shading and a lot of time I finally got an effect that I liked. I used my lightest pencil (HB) all the way down to my darkest pencil (6B). When I finally completed this my hand was burning! It definitely took time to do; or at least it seemed so because I did it all in one day.
As you can see the picture is drawn at a slight bottom-view angle. This effect gives the illusion that you are underneath the Tower and looking upward to the top. The Eiffel Tower also has some great history so you should read about it online. Check out this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eiffel_Tower
