wires and air


Well, it's been a while since I've posted, but I've got Dad's house on the market at last. Whew!
Spent some time at the Ballard Locks the other day, got one good ink sketch and only a good start on an oil sketch. I think I'll mess with it in studio.
Here's my little moleskine study of the wires in the back lot, where all the fun stuff is!

I enjoyed looking through your work. Great stuff. I'm a sucker for power lines

Power lines are so fun to draw. We walk by them so often.

thanks! I love the way power lines divide up space. take a look at Michael Naples' blog, Daily Paintings, in the link list over to the right here on this page, and scroll down till you find his magnificent power line paintings -- 2 I know of. (they are not together.) You will love them!

What is it about telephone lines and power poles that is so appealing to us? Great sketch!

Thanks, Mark! I often think we should start a flickr group for power lines and poles, and one for water towers. Don't know why they're so intriguing!
