This an old one that fits the barn theme.

This is a drawing of one of my nearest Town's street (well part of it) drawn plein air. I posted it on Chatter a long ago but thought it may be ok for here under 'old structures'.

People I am currently off line. I was asked to fill out a questionnaire on another forum and picked up a virus. Geeks is having trouble with it. By all means do not fill out any questionnaire.
Geri thanks for hosting again. Great pics and theme. I still have a lot going on but hope I can get something done for this Month. I hope they can fix your virus so you can get back on line.
Charlie good to see you again. I remember this painting. Great job. To make changes go to edit profile at the top right of the header by your name.
Sarah your plain air drawings are always wonderful. This looks like an interesting street. I would love to walk it in person.
C&Cs always welcome
Oh dear, I did that a few weeks ago Geri...but mine was fraud and my bank recognised it immediately and froze my account. Sorted that evening. Hope your problem is as quickly resolved.
Hello Charlie...good to see you here again....always thought this was one of your best.
thanks for commenting.... all old buildings in the UK come under conservation laws. Any buildings which are over 200 years old (and some of them even under 75 years old) have to be maintained exactly as they looked when first built . The interiors may be modernised to some extent but the planning permission is very time consuming and costly.
I am sure you would enjoy walking around my village too.
Sarah, VERY nice drawing! Your perspective is good with the "wonky" stuff.
Karen, thank you. The first time I tried to change it did not work but I got it.
Charlie, Your patriotic barn fits right in with the theme! Nice one.
Sarah, Your sketch too is perfect. I love the wonky chimneys! So typical.
Well this one is the song "Faded Rose" It is in fact from a photo I took at my friend's house while in England this Fall and was the last of the roses hanging on before frost. So I thought it fir well!
