La planète Marseille! 💙 I’m now on the Côte d’Azur. I drew my 1st urbansketch of this beautiful town front of the cathedral « la Major ».
I was sitting on the terrace « Esplanade Jean Paul II », near the port. 😎
In the background you can see the « Villa Méditerranée » and the museum « MuCEM » (Musée des civilisations de l’Europe et de la Méditerranée)
and the fort Saint-Jean with the old fortress and the tour of the King René.
The architecture of these first buildings are really modern and interesting. They were constructed for « Marseille, the city of Europe » in 2013.
It was a nice atmosphere because this afternoon it was an international sailing boat race with a lot of people.
On the right of the image, in the background, there are also some Islands on the #Méditerranée Sea, with a castle « château d’If ». ️Ref. : book of Marcel Dumas « Le Comte de Monte-Cristo« , 1844 🤓
And on the last background you see on a cliff the Pharo Palace #palaisdupharo. A big area (7.000 m2) who organised a lot of events !
🖌Tools: Fineliners (0,1 & 0,05), wash (blue ink + water) and chalk.
