Sketch of old church elements and setting

IMG_4238Today’s DTSt Ninian’s and Forglen – Church of Scotland. I drew a two-page spread today to give a general view of the church for context. Streetview did not ‘go’ up the alley in front of the building so I decided this was the best angle to view as much as I could.  This spread gave more space to work up a some details in a larger scale on the same pages.

The actual drawing is looser than yesterday’s, so lines and angles are eyeballed and are close but not actually measured. There are a LOT of stone buildings in Turiff.  The pencil under-drawing is shown below. I later determined the actual church name and found a photograph on the church web site which provided good details which I could not get in Streetview – sun in the right direction, helps hugely.  The interior is quite spacious and modern.

( ALL of my drawings in January, are from Google streetview of a town called Turiff, in Scotland. )
