Rue Limogéanne Périgueux

Pencil and ink sketch by Dai Wynn of a cobbled street in the old town (La Vieille Ville) of the city of Périgueux on the Dordogne River in Nouvelle Aquitaine, France. I am always delighted by how well the French maintain their heritage (la patrimoine), while providing all modern services to residents and merchants. All electricity, gas, water, drainage and sewerage has been hidden beneath the cobbles while maintaining the patina of age on the sandstone of buildings. Perfect for a black and white rendition. Drawn in black ink with a 0.2 mm pen on 300gsm smooth surface Arches paper. 29.5 cm high by 21 cm wide by 0.1 cm deep. A4 standard size.
