OLD PLOUGH

 



During my walks around the countryside and parks, I often come across all kinds of unusual things -  these two old ploughs being some of my more interesting finds. I did these two studies one after the other finding wonderful textures and trying to capture the different structures of each one.




I have no idea of the age of these but am thankful to whoever had kept them in their collection. Both paintings done in my sketchbook, each about 6 x 9 inches.

Fascinating bits of equipment

Indeed they are as were many of the other pieces in the collection - some of which I had no idea about their usage!

At a museum in Birmingham, (UK), my favourite exhibit was the machine that wrapped bread loves is their wax paper !
