Painting (11) Bridge Over the Delaware River

Last September, I attended a wedding at the beautiful Lambertville Station Inn. It was a perfect night, clear and mild with a gorgeous sunset. I took a photo that evening of the New Hope – Lambertville Bridge with the sun going down behind it. I’ve always wanted to try and recreate it in a painting. Here is the result:

And the photo I copied:

The Year Of Drawing Adventurously – Week 13: Signs

Following the chart to 52 drawings this year.

It was a lovely coincidence to have ‘signs‘ as the prompt for this week’s drawing challenge at the same time that Cee’s Black and White Challenge had ‘building and storefront signs’ for the photography theme. I decided to meld the two (sort of) and draw one of the photos I’m posting tomorrow. (Monochrome Monday)

I live just outside the small town of Sellersville in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Sellersville is along the Liberty Trail, the route by which the Liberty Bell was transported from Philadelphia to the Lehigh Valley for safekeeping, shortly before the British occupation of Philadelphia in 1777. On the Main Street of town, is the Washington House Restaurant and Hotel, and if you turn the corner onto Temple Avenue, you will find the Sellersville Theater –an old movie theater converted to a venue for live music in the 2000’s. They coordinate with one of the city’s Public Radio stations and bring all sorts of fantastic performers and artists to the town. So here is my drawing of The Sellersville Theater (and its signs) for this week’s challenge:
