Fine art illustration of the Hagia Sophia Grand Mosque in Istanbul, Turkey
The drawing of a Hagia Sophia was completed in 1992, when I was really beginning to develop my style. I chose this drawing somewhat out of frustration, because in my backpacking trip in 1989 I had hoped to make it to Istanbul, which due to time constraints I could not. But the subject of the amazing architecture of this building has always inspired me. As with some of the other remarkable building in Europe, this vantage point is likely not possible unless you were in helicopter.
