Guido Gouvernor, The blacksmith of 'Wrought Artworks' is in the centre next to the Massey Air Hammer. 'Wrought Artworks' gave a forging demonstration that afternoon. I painted about 80% of this on the day; then came back a couple of days later to complete it.

The paintings are displayed in the corridor between Bay1/2 North and Bay 1/2 South - most appropriate as a few of them were painted just a few metres away.

This is Dave, who is the blacksmith from 'Wrought Artworks' I painted in this canvas. Art imitating life!

Better late than never! I had managed to destroy the USB ports of my laptop, which cramped my style a bit when adding photos!
