AWJ challenge an historical building

drawing of a churchThis is a small church at Majors Creek, in New South Wales. Yesterday I took advantage of a day trip and decided to do the AJW challenge prompt for day 22  which is “a historical building”. It is a charming little church called St Stephens, serving a small community as only a few hundred people live in the region. It is built using local stone of different colours which was a challenge to represent. St Stephens was built in 1872. There ia a little more information about Majors Creek on their website

I used watercolour, and pitt pens in a Strathmore mixed media journal. As usual click on the image to see a larger version and I always love peoples comments.

The AJW Sketchbook challenge run by Palma of A Creative Journey  proposes a daily prompt throughout January which is shared in the Artist Journal Workshop Facebook group this is my effort for day 22. I jumped forward in the list.

  1. Lovely stonework! How old is the church Sharon? It looks Victorian.

      Hi Jules here is the webpage (and details about their drive for funds to fix the roof – why do churches always have troubles with their roof?) I will add details about the church to the post but it is not quite 150 years old.

      The website has photos of the church of course

    Oh, beautiful, Sharon, a little church like in England.

    • sharonb says:

      Yes Anneliese it is like and English church – many or our early churches are as the architects came from England then. Now our architecture is more our own but not then

    Beautifully done!

    Lovely. I think you would probably find that any building of that age would have problems with the roof. It seems to be one of those things that is prone to problems unfortunately. But keep on drawing, it obviously agrees with you or vice versa.
