Drawing the bridge
Above: “Drawn in Water Colors”
Below: “The Bridge to Everywhere”
I like both of these paintings for their limited color palette. One of the paintings I like for its abstractness; the other, I like partly because it’s a bridge with which I’m familiar. I’ve driven over and painted Wrightsville Beach drawbridge many times. Up until now, however, I have never painted the bridge open as you see it here. And I have yet to drive over the bridge when it’s open. If I ever do, consider me depressed. In this event, it’s quite likely you’ll read about it elsewhere before you read it here.
