For our town 200 year anniversary, in July 2017, we will organize an art exhibition. Every artist at our gallery will produce 2 items for the exhibition. This one painting is the most complicated and at this moment is WIP and is one of the oldest bridges over the Black River. I hope you like it. The second one is not even started and will be the Historical society building. Hopefully I will be able to start soon that one too. As every time, please critique for me to improve my work. Thanks you, Doina :flowers:

Can you provide us with the photo/image you use to do this painting?  Something confuses me, but I may be wrong.

Sounds like an exciting event, Doina.

The bridge structure looks well drawn - just confused as the color of the reflection of the bridge seems different from the color of the top of the bridge.  Or is it just because it is a WIP?

OK, thanks, Doina.  Now I see where the colors came from.

This is going to be really good.
