Since there are no notable enemies nearby, simply head to that spot, and activate the Artist’s Shack Site of Grace.

Now, you’ll want to explore this small hut because there are several items you don’t want to miss:

  • By the small fence in front of the hut, get the Gold-Tinged Excrement crafting material
  • Next, head left around the shack to get Smithing Stone on the ground by a corpse
  • Finally, head inside the shack and look at the large painting in my screenshot below
