Studio 365: Day 335

Day 335 ii

Mirroir d’Eau I 1.12.15 Pen and Ink on Yupo paper

The Mirroir d’Eau is located across from Place de la Bourse in Bordeaux, France and at 3450 square metres is said to be the largest reflecting pool in the world. It was designed by the French landscape architects Claire and Michel Corajoud and the magic of its transition from artificial misting to a stunning mirror effect has earned it a listing as a contemporary World Heritage Site by UNESCO. It was certainly one of the highlights of our recent visit to this beautiful historic French city as you will have seen on Day 294 and here in these photos that inspired today’s pen and ink wash.
