The photograph that I used to inspire today’s painting was taken from inside a moving car as we crossed this bridge in Canada. Perspective was important here, so I really concentrated hard at getting it right. I have ‘skewed’ the angle of my painting so that I only had to get the perspective right for 1 side of the bridge rather than both! Is that cheating or can I get away with using a bit of artistic license?
I’ve used the same colour palette as yesterday but today, the colours were more muted. Sepia was the base colour to which was added alizarin crimson, cerulean blue and yellow ochre.
