St. Eunans Cathedral in Ink

I am drawn to dramatic architecture like a mouth to a flame.  The more complex, the more mesmerizing!   When I start to draw something of this scale, I begin with a rather central area of focus, and start spreading out from there.  On this cathedral, my first lines were of the large second floor arching window.  Once roughly in, I moved to each side, up and down.  I am always checking those angles, the whole drawing is angles and how they relate to each other, just like a figure drawing.  This constant checking keeps everything in scale, and the perspective true.  This drawing is 1498 in 1498 days.
