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.

Hautefort Château and Village Well

Rue Maxence de Damas in Hautefort, Nouvelle Aquitaine, France. The circular tower and cupola of the Château d’Hautefort against an amazing cloud formation form an impressive backdrop. Ink and watercolour painting by Dai Wynn on 300gsm Arches cotton paper. Interestingly, Google Streetview in January 2011 depicts a fairly diminutive well (puits) with a simple shingled roof. When we visited in September 2017, it had been replaced with the magnificent multi-domed, bent-wood, slate-shingled cupola to match that of the château.
