Working on my mid-term drawing

Next Tuesday, February 23, is mid-term exam day for my NIC drawing class, Fine Arts 111.
We need to create a full page (24" by 36") drawing, showing the use of perspective and atmospheric colour.
I like the design of a one-point perspective view down a hallway, so I chose to do the central hallway in our house with book shelves on one side.
I worked on sketches over the past week, and yesterday and today I scaled up my sketches and transferred them to drawing paper, then inked the drawing with India ink and a nib pen.

Transferring the sketch to the drawing paper. The scale was multiplied by 3.

The drawing has been inked and is ready for colour.
