Mechanicsville Covered Bridge Acrylic Painting

Covered Bridges are a historic jewel here in Northeast Ohio.  This is Mechanicsville Bridge which spans across the Grand River.  I did this painting in acrylic paints on a deep edge canvas.  The challenging part was the wooden slats on the side and inside of the bridge.  I decided to display the colors of fall using warm gold colors on the tree and the foliage surrounding the bridge.  I ended up painting this scene from a slightly different angle than the photo shows.  I felt that I needed to add more color than the reference photo displayed.

See the reference photo below.
