View of a bridge
This acrylic painting was done by my daughter, Amanda, in her sophomore year in the School of Visual Arts, NYC. I loved the use of her bold, dark color palette.The linear perspective lines make the eyes follow the graceful suspension lines of the bridge in rhythm with the vertical lines. The black lines of the bridge and the darkened city are a strong contrast of the sun-setting sky's yellow and reddish colors. The horizontal lines in the water make it appear like ripples and give it a peaceful appearance.
