rio de janeiro

Rio de Janeiro - drawings and paintings by Stephen Wiltshire MBE
This incredible drawing by Stephen Wiltshire is named Rio de Janeiro. It is obviously named after what the drawing is which is the largest city in brazil Rio De Janeiro. This image is a very famous one but for someone to draw it in such detail is truly spectacular. The media that this artist chose to use is the dry media of the simple pencil. Stephen Wiltshire is a very famous artist for these exact kind of pieces. All his pieces of of very famous spots around the world such as london, new york etc etc and he draws them completely in pencil. It is truly amazing the detail that this artist achieves with such minimal tools. The way he captures the values of the buildings and the mountains is incredible in my opinion. A very incredible drawing overall by a very talented pencil artist.
