I've always had a love of historical things, and spent many hours exploring old houses, castles, cemeteries and historic ruins.
In the WDE of WetCanvas there was an image of a woman wearing a yoke from a historical reinactment and the image appealed to me. I have visited similar projects where the characters come to life and play the part of life in that era, making it seem more real. I haven't ever tried a yoke, but imagine that it likely is a pretty good way of distributing weight evenly to be carried.
Here is the sketch for the drawing that will be done with Derwent Drawing pencils. Or an attempt.
