I had occasion to produce an elaborated version of one of the perspective renderings from this project.
I felt that (since I had the opportunity), the fastening system of the timbers in the central telemones should be clear. I furthermore exaggerated the materiality of some of the components, as well as the vertical height of the terrain in the background.
Nevertheless, in many ways I still prefer my very first study for this perspective, made six months prior to its belabored and painterly descendant.
There’s something to be said for the elemental.
