Every Day in May Challenge # 20

Street Light drawing by © Ana Tirolese
Draw a streetlight

Pen and Ink

The streetlights outside my home are ugly, plain, and boring.  I actually drew this from a composite of old film-noire films we enjoy watching. This is far more interesting then the actual streetlights outside my building.

London, Ontario does have some lovely lights downtown (and in other parts of the city) but I was not feeling like leaving the comfort of my home to go photograph lights (I have too many allergies this time of year to draw plein-air).

I have mentioned before, and will reiterate, the simpler an object is the more complicated it is to draw. I had a heck of a time getting both sides of this symmetrical. Eventually I settled for "close enough".
