Golden Gate Bridge, stage 1 / by debbie rich

It’s my Golden Gate Bridge obsession, back for the fourth time. Or seventh or 20th, depending upon whether I count failed attempts of the past. The underpainting was sketched over a light table on medium-weight watercolor paper. I've applied a light oil wash over the colored pencil.

Here is the red pencil underpainting.
