A barn sketch of mine that I did on the way to NC last week from an old barn book I had. I did add sone bit and pieces of my own like the pathetic fencing, the doors, and the hinges and handles on them. I did it with first with a hard sketching pencil and then with pen and ink in my art journal. I actually posted this with my Sunday Sketches post, but thought it would be fun to add it here since it was a barn.

My post is linked to Tom, the Backroad's Traveller's Barn Collective.


  1. Great little sketch! It's fun to keep drawings like this - I find it's a bit like a diary and helps remember what you've been up to :) Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier!

  2. Hey Genie, I see that you are giving Grandma Moses a run for her money...nice job. Your first barn is a style that I rarely up here in New York State. Thanks for stopping this week and I'll be looking to more barns from "Old Virginie."

  3. Nice barns! The first one is very cool!

  4. What a wonderful sketch, so detailed and lovely! The photos are beauties too. The reason I used photoshop to put my sketch on top of some of my options was to narrow down the options to the ones I felt were the strongest...

  5. Cool old barns. Perfect subject for a pen and ink drawing.

  6. Oh, Genie, you got some great barns!
