Some cold mornings have the greatest sunrises! This is just at the turn of winter to spring. Everyone still asleep (early sunday). The colors in the sky held so much promise for the day to come. It took me a while to paint my view and feeling of the old Rhine and bridge as I saw it that beautiful morning. Yes, this is my view when I ride my bike. The bridge won't be able to open like this, but that's a good thing, since I have to wait for it on a regular basis ;-)

What area is this? It looks so lovely and peaceful. It's obviously in the Netherlands but where?

Thank you Heart
It's the Broekvelderbrug in Bodegraven (Oude Rijn)

Nice muted pastel colors and effects, like the glazed reflections from the surface of the water.

Some will freehand every stroke, while others integrate mechanical aids.  Here, IMO, a little mechanical drawing before, or after, the fact wouldn't hurt.  

Treating a large portion of the foreground in an expedient, offhand way starkly contrasts with the relatively detailed treatment of the background - particularly with the buildings in the upper left that are opposite.  It is a reversal of aerial perspective that in terms of the optical qualities in the composition isn't justified in the plan. 

The interest, overall, seems to be with technical application - techniques for doing this and that. That is on "how to" more than "why", execution of parts more than an integral whole. Both are necessary and, at some point, attention is paid to coordinating them.  One thing at a time.

BTW- I noticed upon closing out that this looks beautiful as a thumbnail.  Would make a lovely stamp.

Thank you for the feedback.

Really tried to hold back on the colors to keep the serene atmosphere that I felt that morning.
What do you mean with mechanical drawing? Like technical?

Any time.  And the way you used color is definitely a strong point.

By mechanical drawing I mean using instruments and techniques for measuring and aligning.  For example, straight edge rulers, T-squares and methods for dividing space using them.  In digital work most programs will draw a straight line between two points by using shift+click.  In Clip Studio Paint there are numerous vector tools for precision design work (shapes, edges, rulers, etc.).  The mechanical drawing can impart a strong foundation which the eye trusts and accepts without noticing, so long as it's not overdone.  Work can still look organic with some mechanical touch-up at the end, and, also, if it is used on a separate layer in an underpainting, or plan.
