THE LAKE BRIDGE - DAY 6


THE LAKE BRIDGE
by Sea Dean
8" x 10" Birch Cradle
Acrylic
On Exhibit at Skyway Kelowna Airport

Painting our famous W. R. Bennett Bridge is my nemesis. That smooth elegant curve is ridiculously difficult to paint. I spent a few hours creating the painting and several days perfecting the bridge. Grrrr! But you can't paint this view without it.

It's also a challenge to paint a distant view of a town like this, how much detail do you put in and how much do you leave out? It is particularly important because most people that purchase my paintings at the airport are very familiar with the area and perhaps they even try to find their house in the scene. Good luck with that! This is an artist's impression painted with much artistic license.
