Stained Glass, Pinner Parish Church
Table Cross, Pinner Parish Church 2017
For the last two years I have been drawing in the Parish Church in Pinner. This Church has also proved to be a place of reflection and a refuge. It is a beautiful space in which to draw. The drawings below are some examples.
The drawing project started with the external views, the church tower, the lychgate and the Loudon Memorial. Inside the church there are unlimited subjects. Collating them is an opportunity to see how my responses to this space have revealed themselves.
Using a reproduction of a 19th Century photograph of West House I made this drypoint print. It is printed on watercolour paper. I chose to be as economical as possible in the marks, sufficient to provide a sense of the house and its setting.
I have made many drawings of this building and hedge in Pinner. This is a drypoint print from the drawings.
The Lychgate to St John’s Church was erected in memory of all who served in the Great War, it was designed by J Daymond and Son of Vauxhall Bridge Road, London. (from www.pjbartlett.co.uk/parishchurch.htm
This is the ink drawing (above) from which I developed a drypoint print (below)
This is a drawing of a young tree close to the entrance of Pinner Memorial park. I walk passed this tree often and have seen it grow. I had started the drawing and did not finish it and so this is a snaphot of the growth of the tree some time ago.
