On the easel...
Yesterday I painted...started this painting of the Golden Gate Bridge. I was using a photograph John Wyne took about a year ago. The paint is on very thick. I have to put some more shadows and highlights in, along with the cables. I wasn't sure that I had the right orange-red color on the bridge, so I came home from the studio and researched it. Sherwin Williams #6328 is the color on the bridge, so I will stop at a Sherwin Williams and pick up a paint chip. The official color name is Fireweed. We have great memories from that California trip a year ago...makes me want to go back. I can't wait to finish this one up. Maybe my post tomorrow will be the finished painting!
