  • sketch corn crib and hog stallHog Stall and Corn Crib
It was a mostly cloudy day at the old farm today, but the sun came out at noon long enough to cast an interesting shadow under the eaves of this building. The sketch was done with 2B and 3B graphite to get the major shapes & some of the wood texture in. Then the darks were put in with 9B and followed with hard and medium charcoal pencil. On Strathmore Drawing.
  This is efficiency: one side of the structure was built to hold corn, the other is where the hogs stayed. Not too far a toss to get the feed to the hungry snouts!
