The quick sketch was a preparation with the mid-19th century Tophane "kiosk" in mind. Ironically, I am more fond of it than the finished drawing below.

One thing I really learned was to be selective in drawing. It would be impossible to include all the intricate detail that embellishes this beautiful kiosk, so I ended up somewhat changing the colors and omitting the ornate border that runs around the entire building.
