St. John Lateran's Basilica

This morning I headed out of Central Rome to do a drawing and proportion exercise in St. John Lateran's Basilica. The church, which is the head Cathedral for the Bishop of Rome, is an amazingly ornate structure with the central Nave lined by large sculptures of each of the twelve apostles. We spent class drawing the proportions of the arches that run between the Transepts and the main Nave.  The initial drawings that I used to find the proportions went well so I did a long axonometric drawing, which functions as a drawing the can be measured and lacks perspective. All in all, I think everything turned out better than I expected.
