Riverwalk Lights 6"x12" $145

Here's what I'm looking at as I paint.  First I find a pic and crop it to my liking.  Then I do a value drawing that also helps me see what I want to emphasize and what needs to be down played.  Even with this preparation there are problems.  I realized that the bridge was way too dominant since it was the only curved shape in the painting.So I darkened one end and also extended the tree branches to chop into the arc shape and lead the eye back to the center of the painting.  To me it made a big difference.
