Quaderno: Il Gesu Church Angel
For my first on-site drawing class, we went to
Sant’Ignazio di Loyola a Campo Marzio Il Gesu Church, an extremely Baroque church here in Rome. The church The chapel I drew at is dedicated to Saint Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Jesuit order and former knight. Above is my favorite of the three drawings/sketches I did there. This angel looked to me like he was sliding down a banister. He’s giving what looks like either the hand gesture for “OK” or for blessing others. Below is a picture of what the sculpture looked like from where I was sitting. Click on it to see it bigger.
