The London Eye seen from Plantation Place, Fenchurch Street, London

The London Eye From Plantation Place in London

Here is a sketch of a view of the London Eye seen from Plantation Place, Frenchuch Street in the City of London. The drawing was made using an EF Artpen by Rotring and crayons. The hatching and cross-hatching technique is meant to give the drawing an etching look, similar to what Rambrandt used to do. The hatching technique was remarkably mastered by Rambrandt as shown in a recent exhibition in Paris, at the national library in October 2006 (see following article in Le Figaro). A list of Rembrandt’s etchings is available from this website.
