San Francisco Fog Golden Gate Bridge , an impressionistic watercolor sketch in rust fine art print

This is probably the most challenging piece I ever tried to create! just capturing the scale and the spirit of the bridge is hard enough, but I created this piece while standing on the bridge on what was a typical San Francisco day: grey, cold and VERY windy. The wind whipped my paper around, it made my watercolors dance all over the page, it blurred and tan all my colors together. All this while the thick fog made the bridge disappear totally out of sight every few minutes. But I love how this piece captures what the Golden Gate Bridge is to me: a hard-to-nail down, now-you-see-it-now-you don't, glorious, awe-inspiring structure with a mind of it's own.

This is a print of my original sketch done with watercolor, pen and ink. The print is designed to float in a standard sized frame with a thin white border.( Frame NOT included with piece) Image #1 shows the whole piece. Image #3 shows how it would look in a frame. The colors of the actual print are richer and more vibrant than this web image. Each print is signed and carefully packed and shipped.

All my sketches are done on-site, from direct observation. The print you will receive is a high-resolution scan of the original and will show all it's natural imperfections (the blot of an inked-in line, a faintly drawn pencil sketch under the watercolor), all integral to the process.
