Industrial Chimney

Doodlewash prompt: Chimney

Did you know that the tallest chimney in the world is the GRES-2 Power Station, Ekibastuz, Kazakhstan at approximately 1377 ft?

I intended something quite different. I went looking on Pixabay for a reference photo, thinking of an old crumbly one, but this was the first image that appeared when I typed in chimney. As much as I hate the pollution it must be pumping out, I was struck by the powerful colors and thus you see the results.

Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pens. I'm a self-taught artist who dances about with all sorts of artistic mediums. My main loves are Watercolor, Zentangle and Ballpoint pen. The subjects of my work are many and varied and change at whim. I'm a little bit crazy, but doesn't that come with being an artist? At my Life Imitates Doodles Blog, I post a list of resource links for Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways two times a week. I also write reviews, hold giveaways and share my art work.

  1. This is a very powerful statement…..yes, I agree with the pollution statement. BUT…… the colors are absolutely gorgeous!

  2. A new take on “Industrial Chic!” These billowing towers of pollution and economic support for poor communities have always been a push-pull on my sensibilities. I am a true environmentalist, but I have to admit this painting is powerful and amazing! It belongs in a picture book about environmental care for kids and adults. REALLY! 🙂
