View from Roanoke River Bridge
Parkway Series #327 12 x 16 oil Sold
At milepost 114.7 the Parkway crosses the Roanoke River. Because of the steep slopes down to the river, the shadows are usually very dramatic at any time of the day. The photo for this painting was taken last Saturday at 8 a.m. so the light is much more diffused. I may try the painting again to compare the lighting effects of a different time of day.
