Artist, ink, Uncategorized, Urban sketching, Voyage

The October 8th prompt is Watch.

For prompt Watch I was doing ink drawing of the interior clock of the D’Orsay museum in Paris. The clock is in between the museum building and sky, it looks out over the river Seine and garden Jardin des Tuileries. Looking through the clock, you can enjoy the magificient capital of France.

At first the Musée d’Orsay was a train station, the Gare d’Orsay built for the Universal Exposition of 1900. The clock is actually a reminder from the train station that overlooked the platforms of the rail station a century ago.

I love the D’Orsay clock because they’re so large, they also function as a window. How many important and romantic meetings have taken place under this clock, who knows?:)

The current museum exhibits artworks of the 19th century including Impresdionist paintings and this is my favourite museum in the world. I posted about many pqarisisian museums including D’Orsay museum here.

And I am ready for tomorrow’s Inktober prompt – Pressure.
