Give a Little Respect to me? Detail of the doorway to the TAMAT, the Museum of Tapestry, Mural Art and Textiles, Place Reine Astrid, Tournai, c. 1825. Alas, I arrived too late to explore this museum, with its extensive collections of late-medieval tapestries and textiles, largely from Tournai, once famed for its intricate, richly coloured wall hangings. Instead, the doors shut, I met this character. As a doorknocker he clearly was designed to shew away unwanted visitors. What a grump! Mind you, he appears even more foreboding thanks to the tired condition of this door, with peeling paintwork and rust pock-marking the once splendid ornamentation. Time for sone love, and a lick of paint? #tournai #tournaicity #visitwallonia #hainaut #wallonia #welovebelgium #visittournai #flaneur #museum #artgallery #tapestry #neoclassicism #classicism #ironwork #door #doorway #doorhandle #doorknocker #rescueme #givealittlelove #givealittlerespect #erasure

Apollo's got the Blues? Detail of the doorway to the TAMAT - the Tournai Museum of Tapestry, Mural Art and Textiles, Place Reine Astrid, Tournai, housed in a Neoclassical mansion dating from 1825. The grandiose doorway to this museum is a sheer delight. Cast iron studs pepper the peeling paintwork, slowly rusting. Best of all, though, are the four pierced panels, blue-brown in colour. Rough, blistered and weathered, ghostly faces of Classical gods can just be recognised, heavy with the weight of time. Is this seemingly acne-ridden face Apollo? #tournai #tournaicity #visitwallonia #hainaut #wallonia #welovebelgium #visittournai #flaneur #museum #artgallery #tapestry #neoclassicism #classicism #ironwork #door #doorway #rust #decay_nation #apollo

I typically go for a more controlling art piece. I was talking with an artist that explained to me that art is more than illustration. I hear his words so I’m going to explore tone , and abstraction on some of my pieces. This is an example of a no frills tonal study of a classical corbel. It’s fun to explore through art.#watercolir#watercolorwash#penandinkwash#dailysketch#tonaldrawing#sacredgeometryart #classicism #classicalarchitecture#sketching#sketchbook#
