View Full Version : FND- covered bridge

This is soft pastel on sanded paper. I hate doing perspective. Can never get it quite right. But I loved all the colors in the background in the covered bridge picture. The bridge definately could have been better, but the rest isn't too bad.

Your covered bridge is just great - I'm impressed. I really wanted to do this one, but knew I'd get hopelessly lost in all that detail.

I was hoping to see someone did this one ... I really liked the photo. And you've done a wonderful job with it! The bridge is awesome and really like how you did the background!

The trees in the backgroung are especially fine. The colour is very delicate which gives strenght to the man made structure of the bridge. Good handling of perspective - it was a hard one to do.

Yea, I think this one was tougher on perspective then it originally looked and I think you were the only one brave enough to try it! So many cross beams! But you did do it well..loved the colours you used as well for the snow! :clap:

Inkling, you may hate doing perspective, but it sure likes you! That was essential to get this pic to work, and you worked it good!

I love the purples, it really makes me think of the shadows on the snow just before the sun goes down.

I think you did a really wonderful job here, I really love pastels!

The perspective on this one was hard. Valiant effort, and the trees share the space well.
