a glimpse of the aqueduct

Sometimes you have to be very alert to not miss it.
Praça das Aguas Livres – Ginásio Clube parking entrance.
By the way, the fence here was erased.

back to the aqueduct II

Just this morning. Quite satisfied with the result. I was able to capture a certain Autumn atmosphere .

aqueduct, the end

After some years of drought, the fountain in Jardim das Amoreiras is working again. Placidly, the final stretch of the aqueduct shelters the event.

suddenly the aqueduct XII

Arriving in Lisbon, the aqueduct starts to generate big reservoirs. This one was not in the original plan and was built in the 20th century. It is still operating, although the water doesn’t come from the aqueduct. These little temples are the working entrances.
A few years ago, a project was made for a golf training club but the surrounding inhabitants protested. Some balls were thrown still, but the project was cancelled. Huge money losses, then. The club’s main building is still there, ghostly looking to the immaculate lawn.
When I started this sketch, a guy arrived on this car and parked right in front of me, although there were two parking spaces just behind him. He looked at me and proceeded to exit and lock the car… I like to draw cars anyway.

Finished! Three towers. Two was not enough… It was enough for Tolkien but some people always want more.

A sketch interrupted by the sun that came out from the left. I’ll try to finish it this week getting up earlier.
