Pencil in Canson 9x12 inch sketchbook.
For the beautiful story behind the staircase go to : Loretto Chapel
I drew this from a reference photo I found on the internet. A few years ago I got the chance to visit this beautiful chapel and see the miraculous staircase.
I find I do not like drawing or painting from photos. I have some serious vision problems and I find that photos do not look like 'my world' so I shun from using them if at all possible. This pencil drawing was a challenge for me in that I'm more of a quick get it done kind of girl and this took time and patience. Even so I couldn't see the photograph that well (I did blow it up in photoshop) thus my drawing is not as accurate as the photo. This staircase left an impression on me when I first saw it. I only wish I could have climbed up it but it's roped off to the public.
