It also has this very curious design insofar as it's long and thin and is the shape of the space between the railings and the building at ground floor level. The wall seems to be some sort of polished concrete and the roof is glass and that's the only light into the space.
It's a bit of a challenge to draw because all your normal mental measures of what's 'normal' don't apply!
This sketch reminds me of a bit of a break through moment for me. This was when I realised that flat surfaces actually look more normal if they're not portrayed as having only one colour. There's colour variations in every flat surface of you look hard enough.
I forget how many colours there are in the wall - but it's at least six and probably nearer 10.
