Its a long rambling structure that looks over Barrett Bay and the longer views to Fort Henry and Kingston, but this end of the building with its celebration of the military past made for the more interesting sketch.
As with many in this Marysville series, its a shame about the fold in the middle of the drawing. I bought a lovely little sketchbook last fall, with smooth paper and a faint grid of dots that are helpful. Its just the right size for sketching in the car in cold weather, but now that its warming up I'm thinking I should switch to a larger, one sheet format. Maybe even break out the watercolours!
What caught my eye, here on Simcoe Island, was a single long plank propping up a large barn. I didn't enter the property, but had I walked closer to the barn you can bet I wouldn't walk under that corner!
