This is a Catholic Church at Malaya Gruzinskaya in Moscow. Very beautiful building and so richly decorated. Sometimes I attend organ concerts there, real pleasure for the eyes and ears.
Yesterday was a sunny warm evening, I drove past the building and thought, Why not to try to sketch it? I have an hour, and if I find a convenient parking, I will be able to draw without leaving the car.
Everything went as I wanted, I've got excellent view and started. Sketching turned out to be very difficult. Complex (for me) perspective, a great number of details that I had no idea how to sketch. This was supposed to be a work not for an hour, but on the whole day :-)).
But I'm happy with how it turned out. After weeks (or more?) without training, my wooden fingers slowly remembered how to hold a pencil. I draw in pencil, added ink outlines at home. Very quick sketch, very little detail. But the experience was excellent.
I enclose a photograph of the church, which I did yesterday, when sketching. So beautiful!
