Burns Park Covered Bridge Nocturne, Pulaski County

Burns Park Covered Bridge Nocturne
6X8, Oil on Panel

I painted this one the same night as my Little Rock skyline painting.  It was more than a little creepy painting this one in a very dark part of the park where I think people go for all manner of things at night.  The moon was about 3/4 full and not providing nearly as much light as I expected.  I have painted the covered bridge from almost this exact same spot before.  My main goal here was to get the color and value to properly emulate the night and I think I did a pretty decent job.  I will need to go back when the moon, weather and temperatures fall into place and do a more interesting angle.
