"LITTLE BIG CASTELS"

Hi,

The valley of Loire is well known for its beautiful castels like Chaumont, Chambord, Blois, Chenonceau, Cheverny, etc. But some "little" castel around them, unknown from most of the tourists are also some fabulous treasures of architecture . Most are private property but you could visite them.
With my two sketches made on moleskine watercolor paper, I'm presenting you the castel of "Guet-péan"(14-15e century) and the castel "du Moulin"( 15e century, builded for Francois du Moulin, as gift because he saved the king's life, Louis VIII).
The sketch about the Guet-Péan was previously a disaster but I reworked it and finally, something presentable came...I mean , I guess? What do you think?
Both of them are thirty kilometers in south of Blois.

Guillaume.

You know something is good when you feel inspired to pick up your pencils and start drawing. I have that feeling right now!

Thanks.
