This drawing took a couple of hours to get right. Although the composition looks fairly simple the small measurements I had to make to make the huge structure of the cathedral and surrounding buildings look correct took a while.
I like the happy accident of the shadow of the man on the cross to the bottom right. The cross was part of the floor pattern, the shadow was mine. I might redraw the sketchbook out of the shadow though.
This drawing was done in one continuous motion. The view i wanted to draw was so complicated there was no way i was going to measure it so I just started drawing really fast. Luckily when I finished the drawing made sense.
I need to add a bit more to the left hand side for the composition to be perfect.
