Landmark of the City


The Church of Christ the Savior is the largest in Moscow. In 1931 it was destroyed after the revolution of 1917. They constructed the open air pool (largest in Moscow) for proletariat instead of the church.
The building was reconstructed in 1994-1997.
My EDM#41 "Draw the landmark of the city".

  5. Fantástico dibujo Irina. Me encantan este tipo de dibujos, como bien sabes yo también los practico y se le saca mucho juego, no sólo porque sirvan para soltar la mano sino porque constituyen la base de una acuarela posterior. Enhorabuena.

    Un fuerte abrazo.
