Kingdom City Lines Inked

I remember when I used to omit power lines from landscape paintings, not wanting to break up a beautiful composition with man made lines.  Now, I like them and the realism they add to a simple drawing.  I really think this is a nod to the increased urban sketching I've been doing these last months!  I love the paper in this particular journal, a velvety, 100% cotton long fibered rag on the thin side.  I can add a really wet brush to my ink renderings, and still the ink does not bleed through the paper..... though I fear it might.  I like this journal so much, I got another one just like it!  This painting makes 1635 in 1635 days....I think,  maybe I better check.....!
