This painting took forever! I'm so glad I finally finished it. Its 18" x 24" Canvas and I learned a lot from this painting... Like how to paint straight lines. I tried every method and finally just used painters tape to do the cables for the bridge.

 :flowers: :flowers: :flowers: BEAUTIFUL WORK, JOHN!  The detail is amazing! Did you use a rigger brush for the lines?  I'm sure it will be given a special place of honor.  ~Liz

John:  This is really a nice painting.  Lots of details.  Straight lines are hard to do without tape.  I have tried the cork ruler on an angle but it did not work for me.  :clap: :clap:

Exquisite! I'll bet the town would be happy to purchase this and display it prominently. (If they haven't already.)
