Today I went to Novodevichy monastery, one of Moscow's must-see. I have never been there before and today was planning to find some special treasures for my Moscow Daily Photo blog (here). And I did.

I also found the scene which inspired me for drawing. I post all together the sketch - b&w and watercolored, and the photo. Without purpose to compare. What the point? I can not overdraw the nature, I enjoy drawing and recalling this scene from my sketch and my photo.

It took about one hour to put the sketch in recognizable shape.
Life is good.
