Bill Guffe's October Virtual Paintout site is Belfast, Northern Ireland. I really enjoy visiting cities all over the world. I am submitting the following two sketches and hope to complete an oil painting soon.

Farm sketches (10.5 x 8.5 Ballpoint pen)
I found the old rusty tank at 94 Ballyvallagh Rd, Larne, Northern Ireland [Ref Photo].
The farm animals are from various locations in Northern Ireland.

Pathway (9 x 7 ball point pen)
I liked the composition of this path, with interesting light and dark and patterns. This pathway is at 24 Balleyrickard Rd, Larne, Northern Ireland [Ref Photo]. It was on my short list for potential paintings.
