Sweetwater Creek Bridge

Oil on Canvas 9 x 12"
$ 200 

The Zorn palette has became my teacher, and i enjoy the lessons. A worm and humid afternoon by the Creek where the span of the bridge is the only human presence; ants anjoyed my legs and every bag i had!

I like your stroke work, Mariano...may be because its so different than mine.
Refreshing and cool.The bridge is beautiful.

Hi Arti,
that was such a nice thing to say. You are so kind. Thank you for visiting. I like to explore the possibilities of the Zorn palette is not my regular palette, but it is real easy at the end with a few strokes of red and black to bring this otherwise muted palette to life. Happy painting
