Platte River Bridge, 5 x 7 inch oil on panel

This was my view when I faced the other direction during our plein air trip along the Platte River. (See yesterday's post if you missed it.) Every time I've been across this bridge over the years, I look at the houses along the riverbank, and it was so cool to turn the tables and be at one of those houses looking at the bridge. I painted this one in the studio the next day from a photo I took, and all the feelings I had the day before of being burnt out vanished. This piece was so much fun to paint! Of course the red truck was my favorite part, and I enjoyed pushing the colors of the water a little to make them brighter. Very happy with this piece.
