VSW: Barcelona, 4, Palace Guell

For the Foyer, I squinted to imagine what might be seen in a small sketch.
I went in with grisaille in Lexington Grey to suggest the tones; later I painted the color of the marble with Super5 Frankfurt warm grey ink, as much of the marble was grey.
Did the same with brunaille in waterproof brown ink.

I tried to keep the “suggestion of” rather than doing detail, because I can get caught in detail as if it is a technical drawing — not what I want in a sketch.
