This picture brought back so many memories! Thank you for making it one of the choices.

I lived almost under the bridge in a houseboat community in Sausalito about 25 years ago. That would be the far end of the bridge in this photo.

Though the bridge is often surrounded by fog, I answered the challenge by turning it all red. The painting style is an imitation of a filter that intrigues me.

Sonnet watercolors on 140 lb Canson. One hour to draw and splash on color, plus one hour to add all the dark lines.
