Sketches for 2014, number 27 — Cristo Redentor

Location: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Christ the Redeemer has looked over Rio de Janeiro since 1931. Instead of sketching the full height of the statue I opted to focus on the head and all-encompassing arms. The strong art deco lines in the sculpture made it easier to produce a striking drawing.
