Object Detail

Pencil sketch, likely a working drawing, of a child [Thomas] in a swing under the clothes line. Washing is visible on the line and a clothes basket is on the ground next to Thomas. Skyline with hills is visible in the top left corner. Smither has made notes indicating what colour things are, presumably for the generation of a later painting. The pencil marks are generally heavy and dark, scouring and buckling the paper in places.
