Sketching in the Convent
Today I was sketching in my favourite part of Moscow, Kitay-Gorod. I entered the John the Baptist convent looking for the photos for my Moscow Daily Photo blog. But instead - you see, I sat on a small stone flowerbed in the shadow and started sketching.
In half in hour the nun came out of this door and offered me the thick cardboard sheet, "No point to sit on the stone, sorry, but I did not find more appropriate type of the seat for you.".
A half an hour later another nun addressed to me: "Why are you sitting here? You can damage our flowers!" Definitely no sympathy to the artists here:-))
At the moment I finished, the thunderstorm started, the signal of the job done right.
Maybe I will add color later. Maybe not.
