Power Lines III

This painting will be in an art show called Skylines during most of June--If you're interested in buying this one, you can e-mail me,, but I'll have to hold on to it till July.
I ordered supplies and they just came in--yes!
I have a bit of framing to do--have a good weekend!
Watercolor, 7"x 7"

I'm enjoying the power line series. Very cool!

Dolores said...

It seems like you are looking up a lot. Clothesline and now power lines.

Susan Beauchemin said...

Thank you Dar, I hope to do some more.


Hi Dolores, Your right I have been looking up! Needing a different vantage point I guess.

Martha Miller said...

fantastic composition!!! these are all so terrific! xxoo

Sheila said...

These are amazing... I've always loved looking at the lines and negative space around powerlines. You've captured the beauty I've always wanted to.

I don't know what it is, but this Power Line series you're doing really speaks to me...literally. I was out on errands today and found myself looking at the power lines and thinking "Ooooh, that's a good one. I need to take a picture of that for Susan." Really original and the the lines fit your style so well!

Nice observation from Delores. :)

Hi Martha--tanks!


Hi Sheila--yes--there are some really crazy powerlines out there!


Hi Gwen--I was doing the same thing, but be careful driving!!

This is great, Susan!

Nice perspective on this one (Dolores' comment made me laugh).

The pink sky is soft, shocking, and so unique at the same time!

Is the black of the painting ink or still watercolor?

Just curious.

Still watercolor, I use a combination of Alizarin Crimson and Thalo Green and maybe some violet or ultramarin blue to create my black. I'm probably spelling these colors wrong--(no spell check on these comment windows)
