Welcome to Drawing the Detail, the archive of Drawing the Street.
My name is Ronnie Cruwys. I trained as a conservation architect but I’m now working as a traditional artist, using pen and ink to draw full length streets in some of the more overlooked parts of our towns.
Full length drawings of all the streets drawn so far (approaching fifty in 2019) can be seen on my main website, ‘Drawing the Street‘ but this blog is a means of sharing what I discover about the individual buildings and from people telling me about their history.
I intend that this blog becomes a complete archive of all the buildings I draw.
I would particularly welcome any historical facts or insights that you may have on the buildings which I can include on the blog as a public record. Please get in touch, email below.
My original street drawings can be over 2 metres long. Each drawing is professionally scanned to make high resolution limited edition prints and images for my main website but here on this blog, I show the individual buildings so I can share some of the detail that I love to include on my drawings.
If you want to know more about what’s new on the drawing board, please have a look at my other blog Drawing the Street, where I post monthly updates. Hope you enjoy the drawings and thanks for reading.
