Golden Gate #1 is done / by debbie rich

The final version of my first successful Golden Gate Bridge piece. I’ve tinkered with this view for a few years, and this is the first result that I feel proud of.

There are aspects that I’d do differently, like the not making the bridge cables so thick, and adding more contrast throughout the image. But overall this painting taught me a lot about building up paint patterns and when not to. See stage 1
