EDM 81 Street Lamps

street lights 2

When I told my husband that the EDM challenge this week was street lamps, he reminded me that we had seen so many really pretty onces while in Sicily last year. We went through our photos and I sketched these ... all of them from Sicily.

I tried to remove the shadow and darken the pencil ... this is the best I could do with the scan.

What a fun selection of street lamps! And so well done. Ours are so boring I may not even do them. Guess I will have to go to Italy to see some fun ones.

Oh, I wish we had these here!!Ours are pretty pedestrian, aren't they? Nice little line drawings, Ms. L!

Lin, after seeing your street lights, i started noticing how plain the ones in my town are!! I like the variety in your drawing.

Renate said...

Amazing, all that different forms. You did very well with them!

Oooh! I like the curly-q one. Molto bene.

Great job, Lin. I think we should all go there and sketch street lamps, don't you? I don't think any one of us would mind.

Hi Lin. Your stuff is something to look forward to for both its quality and colors (like the Oleandar). I wish the street lamp were a full painting, like the others. Of course, you are more prolific than most of us, so why do even more than you already have? Thanks.
