shed door

This is a finished sketch of a shed door in Seal Cove, White Bay.  It only took a couple of days to draw the outline. But several weeks to complete the ink work. 
A shed under construction on one of the many wharves surrounding the cove in Seal Cove, White Bay.  I added some ink to the boards. I wasn't sure how it would look. But it looks rough and adds character to the sketch.

Salvage, NL

This is an ink and charcoal sketch completed in Salvage, NL. It was a sunny day and I saw this shed from a lookout in the village.
