Under A Bridge Darkly

 

This is a studio version of a scene we found somewhere up near Didsbury.  It had lovely contrast both in value with the dark railway bridge and also strong colour contrast with the bright orange grasses and the general blue and neutral tones of everything else. I had to think quite a while how to have the shadows on the bright grasses.  I toyed with the idea of doing them with a dark warm wash but settled for a wash of blue and I think that works quite well.
