Shakespeare's Library (as told by my left hand)


This is a charcoal sketch of Shakespeare's Library in Paris. Its a really cool old bookstore packed with books. They have a small place upstairs where I heard they let writers stay for free. Im not sure the validity of the source, but if its true I bet there's a long waiting list. I sketched this with my left hand while still suffering from tendonitis in my right (going on 9 months, aaaah!). I used this really old parisian charcoal from the early 1900s, I though it was appropriate for this sketch...
Shakespear's Library is charcoal on paper. 16" x 12"
