this actually is a sketch of a previous photo. i really liked this detail, unfortunately the photo didn’t actually capture everything so the right section of this sketch is imagined.
as is clearly my habit of sketching without measuring, i fudged the curves and shadows. it’s quite clearly off but it was a fun relatively quick exercise in still life sketching. the outer courtyard is completely wrong.
i think i actually got a little lost in the detail and shifted pov’s somewhere between the photo and the sketch, help!
