5x7 postcard

This is a small Watercolor/gouache painting based off a recent 2000+ mile road trip i just took with an close friend. The bridge itself is based off of the BNSF Rail Bridge in Minneapolis. A friend we were visting took us to a spot to view the Mississippi river, and the imagery just burnt itself into my head. Looks much better in person, its been a challenge to try to get watercolors to scan right. 

I'm sure ill be pulling inspiration from this trip for weeks to come. 


  1. Wish I would've gotten around to this. Looks good!

  2. Just looked at it closer.. Those lines in the bridge are so nice.. The whole thing has an amazing texture... I always liked working small to get those nice even textures with the watercolors
