Hello chelsea96 and welcome to Artists Forum!

I love drawing and as such, the focus of my comments would be on your sketch of the building, which I do feel is a well-rendered, solid drawing of a handsome building; there is some mature, astute drafting present. However, several features of it, when regarding its fidelity to a source image, fall critically short of accuracy:

My first observation, highlighted in green, is the shape of the dome. The actual building's dome is cut off at or before the diameter while you drew well beyond it.

That flagpole is way too thick proportionately.

There two architectual components completely missing in your illo.

While the overall shape of the building is wide and squat, your drawing depicts it more tall and narrow.

The middle section of the building is rounded, but your interpretation seems distinctly box-ish.

Now, we're talking about basic shapes....not the subtle nuance of a line weight or smoothness of a color gradient. I'm being picky not because you're bad but because you're actually good but have yet to transcend a certain threshold of perception.

Keep at it!
