This tremendous piece of art made me go crazy and my eyes were just stuck on how detailed it is. I wonder how you've learned this miraculous art. Hats off to you!

Absolutely beautiful piece. Since you asked for a critique with this piece I will provide one. That said, it is better than 90% of the stuff on devientart. 

Love the line work - wonderfully done and perfectly expressive. As a stand alone piece it could feel a bit unfinished. Possibly adding in a lightly colored background -  not a flat one but one that is washed in.  If I'm looking at it as a technical drawing then the line quality could work against that as it is somewhat sketchy. The only reason a say this is that the application of the lines are darn near perfect and the few areas where they aren't stand out. 

But... this is better than anything I could do at this point. I'm guessing this was a quick study drawing potentially for a more robust work. And when I see it next to your other pieces it makes sense.  Maybe a way to present it if it were in a gallery setting would be this, along with some detail sketches of other parts of of the same structure which in turn are all presented with a polished painting. Tell a story of the process in a way. 

Thanks for sharing this. Discovered your work last night and have had a great time exploring it all.  This really does fit in with what I see as your theme; combining technical realism with the expressiveness of painting in a wet on wet method.  Most excellent work sir, and you have me wanting to explore watercolors more!

well I kind of always draw. My mum is an architect, now me too. First my mum teached me how to draw then I used to attend drawing classes when I was a little girl, and when I was 16 or something I started to go to drawing school to prepare myself for exam in drawing for unniversity

Wao, it's a beautiful cathedral and you captured its beauty!! I can see you have an incredible eye... you found a lot of details that a normal person wouldn't see.

And... OH MY GOSH. MANY DETAILS X_X.

Gah, so good... That's wonderful. Oh, I have to ask--do you draw these from real architecture, or do you make it up with what you've seen + creativeness?
