'Belle Isle Footbridge II'
16" x 20" Oil on Canvas
I received a request for a second, much larger, version of my original Belle Isle Footbridge painting and I was happy to oblige. The larger version allowed me to expand on the detail of the original, pictured below:
I think it turned out well. I only used three colors to mix the entire original painting as sort of an experiment, but I went with a full palette on the new version. I think the expanded palette helped me to create more of a contrast between the shadow areas in the foreground and the brighter areas in the riverbed.
I'm searching for more commissions so let me know if you have any requests.
