St. Basil’s Cathedral which was built in 16th century (1555-61) on orders of Ivan the Terrible was originally named as Trinity Church or Trinity Cathedral. During the 16th and 17th century, it was perceived as the heavenly city or the place of God as it happened for almost all the churches of the Byzantine Christianity at that time.
The building is now running as a museum and a tourist destination as it has unparalleled style and form of architecture. Mr. Dmitry Shvidkovsky proudly claims in his book of Russian Architecture, “It is like no other Russian Buildings”.
The sketch is made with a black ink pen on cartridge sheet and then rendered with felt tip pens to bring in the vibrancy of colours to the complete art piece. The rendering is done with straight lines and strokes of the tip of the pen, cross & diagonal hatches for the shades. The background is painted with ordinary pencil crayons, again working with only straight strokes.
