A local bridge

This bridge spans the Connecticut River not too far from where I live. I recently joined a local Plein Air group, and we met up today to paint this scene. It was tough. Framing the picture, getting the right perspective (a few mistakes in that department), dealing with rapidly shifting light (still struggling with negative space in watercolors), etc. Overall? Not too bad.

9"x12" on paper. C&C welcome.

Thomas

Re: A local bridge

This seems like a tough subject. The shapes and colors are realistic. I like the tree to the left holding the eye on the page. Gary

Re: A local bridge

How nice! Seems it would be esp difficult with WC. I like your composition w/large tree and twigs on left. I think the lights and darks are well handled, esp under and behind the bridge. It's a pleasant scene.
