Brooklyn Bridge - 5x7

Considering the awful photo I had to work from (it was just kind of a blah day when we took our tour),  I'm really happy with how this one turned out.  I have a little bit more confidence in my ability to imagine things, like the sunlight on this bridge for instance.

Not usually one of my favorite times to paint (middle of the day) but I couldn't resist this fun boat with it's bright white sails up.
