Learning to Look 3 - France August 2010

Drawings from a series of trips taken over the summer of 2010, collectively known as Learning to Look.

3  -  France

Driving across the northern French plain Chartres Cathedral towers above  the surrounding countryside and the town. Staying in a mad and wonderful hotel pressed up against the side of the Cathedral.  Arrived in time for the Son et Lumiere show of computerised projections and sound. Several swift drawings in the morning before heading south .
