Welcome to Drawing the Detail, the archive of Drawing the Street.
My name is Ronnie Cruwys. I’m working as a self-employed artist here in the Clyde Valley, Scotland, drawing streets that are meaningful to me often 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 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 – easier to read on a mobile. I can also share some of the detail that I love to include on my drawings.
If you’d like to know more about what I’m working on at present, please have a look at my other blog Drawing the Street, where I post updates. Hope you enjoy the drawings and thanks for reading.
