The Powell Ranch


Today a friend and I went out to the Powell Ranch North of Plains,
(They aren't kin to us-but good friends) and sketched some of his old buildings
his Granddad built years ago. It is such a fun place to see, so many old historical barns and corrals.
I really love the little tiny red building but didn't do it justice, maybe next time!
It's probably about 6 feet tall, and has the neatest old door knobs.  I may have to draw it next.
It is very different drawing from life vs a photo. I can see a lot of things that should be different, but
that's the fun of just sketching. The gate in real life is just awesome.  So weathered, and had such character, and I didn't do it justice either. It was a fun 2 hours!
