I like the feeling of light and mist you expressed here. It is calm and peaceful.
And the composition is ineresting. Were you creating thins on plain air or at home (studio)?

this is wonderful, a great impression! (all your gallery is great)
Just a doubt: the reflection of the central arch in the water shows the top of a tree, but seeing how you blurred the background trees to give the sense of distance it looks like that such detail couldn't be reflected. Am I wrong?

Thanks! :) good point. the tree in the middle got blurred so it looks further back than it really is in the reference. that is the reflection in the water you are referring to. at this point, i'll just have to call it artistic license. ;)

Well, in lieu of sounding redundant, I'll just point out all the parts of this drawing that I especially like (and there's a lot too). Mainly the contrast in the textures between the real bridge and the reflection in the water. You've also flawlessly added those water lillies resting atop the surface. That's just great, especially for charcoal! And I also love the blurriness of the background, it seems simple, yet it adds a lot to the scene in terms of showing distance. Awesome work. :+fav:

Very nice work. Excellent detail. Did you do this on location? I've never used charcoal myself...only dabbled a little. Found it too messy for me. But I like what you've done here with it. I love old bridges like this, they're like something out of a storybook or a movie. Beautiful piece here. Love it.
