A worn, old powerline

In my first attempts of making a watercolour painting, I did some drawings of different (but still very similar) street views. Like these ones:

One common denominator in them all is the presence of power lines with birds on them. This was the first time I tried drawing power lines, and I just had so much fun with them that I couldn’t stop drawing.

I was also very happy with the way the birds turned out, as I just decided to add them by a whim and kind of doodled them on.

Well, it’s been a while since the last power lines I’ve drawn, so I decided it was time to rise another one on the paper.

So I did a couple of searches for power line-pictures on Google to get inspired and just dived into it.

I first did a basic sketch with a pencil to make sure it looked alright, before adding all the details by free hand using a felt pen.

After about an hour, this were the result:

I have to say that I was really happy with this one. And my love for drawing power lines have not faded a bit.

Actually, I’m right now fantasizing about which kind of power line I’ll try and draw next!

    1. Thank you, Michele!☺ I just love drawing power lines, so I’m very glad you liked it. I don’t know what it is that makes them so much fun to draw. I guess there is a lot of history in them, and the way they kind of blend in with it’s surroundings without noticing them. But there must be some birds on them though!☺

  1. Great job finding beauty in the apparently mundane. And we’ll done on the perspective – always a challenge to capture a view from below.
