The Sketchbook Challenge ‘June’

This month’s theme over at The Sketchbook Challenge is ‘Urban Sketching’.
I think I might like this one. It pushes me out of my comfort zone a little and that’s a good thing.
So here is my first try.

While sitting in the parking lot of a local grocery store I was eyeing the high tension wires and the massive poles they are on.
They’ve been slowly replacing and updating the electrical grid in our fair city, but I question the safety of their work.
Not that I know anything about electricity or high tension wires but to me the poles look extremely overloaded and they snap crackle and pop as well as ‘sing’!
Does that seem right to you? LOL

(Down with a cheap mechanical pencil I had in the car at the time on computer paper.)


  1. Very realistic looking. Amazes me that birds can sit on the wires and not become extra crispy

  2. I like it. I think you did well with this. I need to get back to doing more sketching also.

  3. snap crackle and pop is perfectly normal. Its the air ionising around the high voltage wire. Now if they were "glowing" or "smoking" there'd be something very wrong !

    Good sketch btw! xx


I appreciate your comments!
