Covered Bridge

KJ 21 Jun 2020

This is my version of Covered Bridge. After reading comments from others about difficulty with highlights and contrast, I used a different technique for my painting. Also if you see this painting in a book as opposed to the video, they are very different. I decided to start with black gesso underpainting on the lower portion of the canvas and for the background foliage. I used liquid clear and sap green as a base. Highlights showed up better!

This looks amazing. I think you did a great job with the highlights. I like how you left the bridge element, but didn't put it over water. The shading in the "tunnel" looks good.

Thanks doggymomee!! Bob didn't have any water in the painting either. Thank you for your kind words!! I had a lot of fun with this one.
