Grouse Mountain above Vancouver

Ink sketch of Vancouver below Grouse Mountain.
The view of Vancouver from just below the Eye of the Wind on Grouse Mountain. The Eye of the Wind is a wind turbine with a viewing platform just below the turbine housing. For those who would prefer not to scramble up a steep and slippery trail to the top, ignoring the “Danger, No Hiking” sign, a chairlift is available.

Duomo di Ravello

The Duomo at Ravello beside the Villa Rufolo and the road tunnel which passes beneath the villa’s magnificent gardens to emerge above a stunning panorama of the Mediterranean, the seashore towns of Maiori, Minori and Salerno on the Costa d’Amalfi in southern Italy.

A gondolier on a small canal in Venice, Italy pushes his gleaming black gondola with gold ornamentation away from a stone quay. Freehand pencil and ink sketch by Dai Wynn on 300gsm medium texture Arches cotton paper. 42 cm high by 29.5 cm wide by 0.1 cm deep approximately. A3 standard size.

Notre Dame Cathedral 2015

A freehand sketch of Notre Dame Cathedral on the Île de la Cité in Paris as of 23rd April 2015. Exactly four years later after the disastrous 2019 fire, the spire is no longer, and the roof is missing.

Sarlat-la-Canéda Street Lamp

A typical sandstone house, now a shop, in la vieille ville (the medieval centre) of Sarlat-la-Canéda, Nouvelle Aquitaine, France. While a new glass door in the stone arch provides access to a shop, the wooden shutters on the window above the door are about to fall off with age. Ink sketch for a watercolour painting by Dai Wynn on 300gsm rough surface Arches cotton paper. 42 cm high by 29.5 cm wide by 0.1 cm deep approximately. A3 standard size.

Rue Limogeanne Perigueux

Pencil and ink sketch by Dai Wynn of a cobbled street in the old town (La Vieille Ville) of the city of Périgueux on the Dordogne River in Nouvelle Aquitaine, France. I am always delighted by how well the French maintain their heritage (la patrimoine), while providing all modern services to residents and merchants. All electricity, gas, water, drainage and sewerage has been hidden beneath the cobbles while maintaining the patina of age on the sandstone of buildings. Perfect for a black and white rendition. Drawn in black ink with a 0.2 mm pen on 300gsm smooth surface Arches paper. 29.5 cm high by 21 cm wide by 0.1 cm deep. A4 standard size. FOR SALE



Star Cyclist

A rough pencil and ink sketch for a birthday greeting card for a very keen cyclist. The winning cyclist, wearing a yellow jersey, having won the premier cycle race the Tour de France, is clearly riding around the Arc de Triomphe on l’Étoile (the Star) prior to descending on les Champs Élysées in Paris. So, the world star cyclist is shown at the Star. NOT FOR SALE.
