Old doors in Tours
While waiting for the car to be serviced, I wandered around in a chilly Tours early on Saturday morning. Architectural features aways catch my eye and I tried to pen down some old doors of which there are plenty in the old town.
All sketches done with rotring pen, and given some watercolour back at home. Fabriano watercolour CP sketchbook, 18x26cm.
I had a conversation with some early joggers who stopped to have a look over my shoulder… going something like this:
“Ah, vous faites les portes?” (I see you’re drawing doors)
“A pity that door isn’t too well cared for.”
“Oh, that doesn’t matter, it actually gives it a lot of charm and character.”
“Yes, much like us. We also get more charming with age.”
