Rainy Night


For all practical purposes the Steel Bridge work is finished.  I'm going to varnish it and then see if there are any loose ends.  It has been a wonderful four evenings with the temps dipping into the low 80's to 70's.  Tonight's rain really helped.  The humidity keeps the paint from drying so that I can blend larger expanses of paint at a time.  Most of my work was in detailed areas, but it still helped having a longer blending window.

Tomorrow night I will be working on the Fremont Bridge work.  I will be using the same mixture of black, grey and white graphic details.  This is a case where the one work informed the other work.
