The new way is far simpler and more consistent. You'll get used to it.
You can of course simplify your first line to:
Glib::RefPtr<Gdk::GC> refGC = Gdk::GC::create(drawingarea);

In particular, you should never need to worry about reference counting
in gtkmm2, just pass those RefPtrs around and let the RefPtr worry about
the details.
