"afternoon vignette"

This was such a fun little painting to do.  Still playing around with how little detail I have to include to make a object read as a structure.  I also started with a dark underpainting which is not something I usually do.  I wanted to do this bridge much larger but first I wanted to see if the idea I had would work. I think it does!  Going bigger soon :)
