This is a spread of different scenes from the ancient site of Persepolis in Iran.  My point of view to sketch was somewhat restricted by a complete lack of shade to be found anywhere  – July in the deserts of Iran is no laughing matter!

I did what I could from life and filled in other bits and pieces from photos afterwards.

I’m so happy I got to visit such a significant ancient site.  Ever since reading of the great city of Persepolis I have always wanted to visit, and it didn’t disappoint.
