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.
