I have to agree with Robert, the sense of depth is quite amazing!

It seems everyone agrees, great composition, fabulous work! I love the strong vertical format. That seems rare for you.

Thank you, one and all! This was a fun work even with the standing and leaning and all. Yes, verticals this large are not usually my favorite format to work a composition in, but sometimes you have to stray out of your comfort zone and see what is what. Like squares, which I really never worked within before a couple years ago. I have two more bridge subject works to complete for the exhibition, one of which will be yet another very strong vertical work and another which will be almost a square. Stay tuned!

Terry, I really love this piece. I have been checking out your site and blog for some time but have never commented. I'm a huge admirer.

Your work is quite incredible and I love your subject matter, you find beauty in things that most people never take a second glance at. That is an art in itself.

Do you use graphite alone? A lot of artists seem to mix carbon or charcoal with graphite to get the dark darks. Just curious.

Can't wait to see what's next, Thanks
