Eiffel's tower

Eiffel’s tower

acrylic on unmounted canvas
12 x 12 inches

This is my first ever full landscape painting. I’ve painted landscapes before, including this natural one, but there was always portrait in the composition until Eiffel’s tower. The first time I painted anything architectural was with another famous structure, the house in this double portrait.

Eiffel’s tower is part of a series of painted drawings that I created to illustrate my book about why I don’t copyright my art. For more about the making of this piece, watch this vlog.
