St.Petersburg


Last week I went to St.Petersburg. For sightseeing. Very beautiful. But for me it was difficult to find inspiration in the city with straight streets, square houses and almost no trees. Well, difficult for chronic Muscovite who loves the chaos of Moscow. So I went to the woods around the city and enjoyed every moment of the palaces and mansions surrounded with trees.  They are gorgeous, I will post photos and you will agree with me. Mansions and trees.
One sketch was done in the downtown, as tribute to Sketchcrawl Moscow (link here) and worldwide sketchcrawl.

The second one is the side view of the Peterhof residence of Russian Tzars.

And the last one was drawn in Pavlovsk, 40km from St.Petersberg, residence of Tzar Pavel.
The weather was wonderful and the places were so kind to me.
And few photos made in Pavlovsk.
