Angles and ornaments…

Another drawing from our recent stay in Las Palmas. I don´t get the idea behind the balconies on some of the old buildings of this town. They are often too small to actually use and I never saw any people on them. Still they are built with such care. The ornaments are sometimes overwhelming, and it must have taken a lot of work and craftsmanship to build them. I sense a slight lack of equilibrium between form and function here, but hey, who´s complaining. They are incredibly tempting to draw, so they fill all the function I need.
