Stable side door

I also did this pencil drawing at Sentry Hill. This was the side door of the stable when it was a working farm, but it is the entrance to the caretaker's accomodation.

Mr McKinney's front door

I did this pen and wash drawing at Sentry Hill.

Sentry Hill

This is a drawing of Sentry Hill, which is a farmhouse that was purchase by Newtownabbey Borough Council. It is a very fine example of an Antrim Farmhouse. Lots of school children visit it and learn a little of rural life in Co. Antrim. It was the home of the McKinney family who liked to say that they had a bathroom fitted before Buckingham palace did.

A Town House

I did this little sketch last summer in my moleskine sketchbook. It is the font door of a house near where I live. I just thought that it had a certain charm. Lokking at it makes me think of better weather.
