St George’s North Church: Greenock

Draw what you see

Inspired by Betty Edwards’ Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain book, I drew this about 3 years ago from a photo I took on my smartphone.  The darkened top area of the drawing was unintentional – I photographed the drawing and tried to make the contrast darker using Paint Shop Pro 7.  It came out the way you see it.  I quite like it that way.

I used a simple HB pencil.  As you can see, I abandoned the drawing, but I don’t think I’ll go back to it, I’ll keep it that way, there’s something skeletal about it.

In 2007 St George’s North Church merged with the nearby St Luke’s and they are now referred to as the Westburn Church, Church of Scotland.  St George’s was abandoned.  No longer a church, it has been used as a commercial property.  More details are available by clicking this link… Buildings At Risk
