Day 286: Tholos, Delphi, Greece
So today were back with the ancient monuments them of sketches that we briefly left yesterday, this time in ancient Delphi, Greece where I’ve sketched the ruins of the Tholos, which as far as I can tell was a circular market structure where money was weighed out or the gods of trade were worshipped.
Tried to be a lot more free and loose with this one tightening up the main parts as I went along rather than trying t get everything right in the first pass. Not overly sure if it worked but I quite like the actual temple (which is always useful as that’s the main focus) but I think I may have gone a bit over the top with the messiness.
Still it turned out less messy than I thought it would and you can actually make the trees out in the middleground which is good. I still think I much prefer the level of messiness that I used in yesterday’s tractor rather than in this one though.
Anyway that’s all for today. Not sure where we’ll be tomorrow but theres still a few ancient monuments left to sketch so it might be one of them.
