Here's my submission for this lesson. Comments and critiques are always welcomed.  Thank you for a lovely lesson once again Nolan.    Patricia




This is my corrected version of the bridge and after seeing the photo on the computer, I still need to correct the white curved pillar which I will do:

yes, just like that Louisa O0

Great job Patricia :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:
just one small improvement - the framework underneath the bridge (directly beneath the road and above the right pillar) goes darker as it nears the road as less light can get in there, so just do a shading in that area. Let me know if you are not sure which area I am referring to O0

 :thankyou: :thankyou: :thankyou:  Louisa, Jennylynn and Nolan for your lovely comments. 


Yes, Nolan, I know exactly where you mean.  It is the curved pillar directly beneath the road and the framework under the road which came out much lighter in the photograph. I will correct that immediately.  Thanks for noticing.
