Two Bridges Just "Built" In Watercolor


These were painted on 140lb. Arches cold press watercolor paper. One is the San Francisco Bay Bridge as it heads into the Yerba Buena tunnel. Last year I found a marvelous reference photo to paint this from on the internet. The other watercolor is of the Freeport Bridge south of Sacramento, CA in the delta farming area. I painted from a reference photo that I took about 2 years ago. It is a cantilever bridge and that huge cement block on the top id the counter balance.

Great fun to see these on the blog after seeing them on the 'clothesline' in the studio. Very nifty painting.

Barbara, I'm not sure about the Bay Bridge painting, and I'm doing it again with a different color palette. Stay tuned.
