Coop on a Bridge II

This attractively run-down little building, whose purpose when viewed from the other side was dubious, was clearly used as a chicken coop. It was built right on the barn bridge, so the the stone wall of the bridge formed its foundation in the back. 2B, 6B & 9B graphite sketch pencil on Strathmore Cold Press Illustration Board—-the kind with the raised thistle logo in one corner; VERY nice to work on.

Getting the appearance of chicken wire over the cut-out window gave me a “fit”, but I decided  that a “suggestion” of wire was a lot more important than getting the precise number of holes, & in the right size. (“Perfection is a direction,—- not a place”!)
