The Eiffel Tower – It’s all getting a bit too meta!

A couple of years ago, whilst in Paris, I sketched the iconic Eiffel Tower.

This was all done while Lucy and Caroline took a trip up the tower.

I first draw this, about halfway across the Parc du Champs de Mars (Just beside the road, if you must know)

I then wandered across the road and settled down beside a piece of shrubbery to draw another view of the tower.

Including me, albeit inadvertently!

Unbeknownst to me Caroline and Lucy had climbed to the second level by this time and took a photo of the park below, where I was sketching. A lovely warm day.
