The Fortress of Vignola

These are drawings made in Vignola, a little town 30 km far from home. The main sight is the Fortress. I passed about 10 minutes to chose this angle...

...only to discoverer afterwards that I'm not so original: it is the angle of all the photos that illustrate the covers of every Vignola's guide. At least, no doubt it's the best angle at all.
This is the decoration of the arch over the entrance to the castle in the courtyard. Of course they are eagles spreading wings and legs, but while I was drawing them, I couldn't help thinking of electrocuted chicken.
