Lake Dardanelle Train Bridge
11X14, Oil on Birch Panel
This is another one from the workshop I took with Bill Garrison a few weeks ago. I did most of this one en plein air but then did a few touch ups in the studio later, mostly incorporating Bill's comments. One thing he suggested that I'm not sure I really did quite like get right was the vague reflection of the bridge in the water. I did smudge a little of that color into the water but I don't know if it reads quite as a broken reflection. I saw this bridge on day one and knew I would have to try to paint it. It was very windy the day I did this one. This view was somewhat sheltered from the wind by trees and buildings on the point but the water here was still pretty active.
