St. Petersburg is gloomy...

5:00 AM



It's day four of the Digital Dozen's Countries and Cultures challenge!  Today I've done another country mani for you! This one is for Russia and the beautiful city of St. Petersburg.  If you're not familiar with this design then I've included some pictures below of it's inspiration, The Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood.  This church can be seen from all over the city of St. Petersburg, It is built on the site where Tsar Alexander II was assassinated and was dedicated in his memory.  Not only is the outside beautiful but the inside is stunning as well.




I've done my art based on the four most prominent towers of the church.  The pinky should be squares and not circles but I couldn't figure out how to do it in a way that I really liked and in person the gold was more shiny which detracted from the round shapes.  There are some pictures of the outside and inside of this beautiful landmark below.  If you ever get to Russia it's definitely a MUST SEE.
