Gaining Insight From Duplication

My Eiffel Tower Series
Alors, I’ve done a crazed set of 8 Eiffel Tower sketches. It reminds me of the multiples Monet would do of the haystacks. The more you sketch or paint the same view or subject, the more is unveiled about them- lines in the tower, better ways of keeping proportion. It’s also an exercise to see how many times you can portray the same subject. I chose to keep the size and style a constant, changing only the pen color. But what if I explored changing size (larger), changing style (minimalist) or technique (stippling)?
Think about it, maybe try a little bit of your own exploration. These are only four out of the eight towers. Funny enough, as I drew, the towers started to morph, taking on their own characters, some looking plump, others leaning to one side.
