Traditional Pen & Ink (9) – St Vincent de Paul church rectory, 117 Redfern St Redfern NSW 2012

August 15, 2011

Still sticking to the theme of streetscapes on A4 110gsm cartridge paper in Staedtler Fineliner pen 0.5mm. I’m still sticking to contour and hatching/cross-hatching – all freehand, no rulers!

This is the rectory building beside St Vincent de Paul Church (left) and the former Redfern Telegraph Exchange (its modern extension is in the 1980s brutalist architectural style to the rear. Beside the Telegraph Exchange is the Redfern Post Office (1882) and just down from the church in the same block is the Redfern Court House (1898).

This was copied from a series of photos taken twenty years ago, two of which are below:



Currently (August 2011) the building is probably undergoing restoration.
