Drawing two of a three drawing series, an elegant and square house stands atop a cliff above the sea. L' île de la Comtesse in Saint-Quay Portrieux, Bretagne is a small island a few hundred feet of the coast and accessible at low tide. In its center still stands the ruins of the Countess residence. I spent many years in boarding school above the town and often wandered alone among its cliffs and fantastic ruins. I enjoyed imagining and designing the architecture of this house with an amazing view of the Brittany northern sea. An intricate and detailed graphite pencils drawing that I often show students as a drawing lesson. A white mat and a simple charcoal colored moulding frames this piece.
