Marischal College & Greyfriars Church, Aberdeen

 

The second largest granite in the world, Marischal College is an iconic Gothic Revival building in Aberdeen, Scotland. Completed as a university in 1844, this highly complex building is laid out as a series of repeating bays either side of a main gate adorned with no less than 7 coats of arms- the founders and past locations of the university!

In line with the main gate you can see the spire of the Mitchell Hall rising in the background- this sits in the interior quadrangle and gives some idea of the size of this beautiful building

This Connoisseur's Edition captures the familiar panorama including the full Marischal College frontage facing Broad Street, and the spire of Greyfriars Church to the right- a very large and detailed piece.

This work was created at my trusty drawing board with the old - fashioned architect's tools of choice! Using the parallel rule, adjustable square, compasses and measure I scaled the entire frontage of this building from numerous reference photos, cross-checking dimensions to give me a set of working guidelines. I then got to work freehand shading over this with a 0.05mm fineliner, bringing it to life with depth, shadows and texture. Some of the smaller details in this drawing required a very stead hand indeed- I had to lay off the coffee for a bit!
