 blacksmith shop

On another farm today. I chose to draw this building because of its interesting sway-backed roof. The side wall shows the settling of the foundation, too. The farm’s owner told me that it was once used for a blacksmith shop. ( I’m guessing not a commercial one, but one that met the needs of the farm itself.) 2b, 7b & 9b graphite pencils, on Master’s Touch spiral-bound hard-back sketchbook. (This paper is actually an off-white, nice weight paper. Fairly good to work on although darkest darks seemed to be hard to get with graphite. Its’ an economical choice, though; good for everyday field-sketching. )
