BridgeHole 9. An original acrylic on canvas painting, by Jan Vallance. Square Canvas board 8″ x 8″ in a simple white frame. (framed size 9″x9″)
The inspiration behind the BridgeHole paintings.
I just love canal bridges, their varying shapes and sizes and the different purposes. They provide a means for traffic, pedestrians, trains, water or livestock to pass over the canal. When I pass through them I get the feeling of leaving one world and entering another. That feeling is enhanced when you see the silhouette of someone passing through, or a boat framed by the bridge.
The painting is varnished for protection with a low sheen varnish.
The paint on this picture is built up in layers. It includes gold paint and my trademark swirls. Unfortunately the gold doesn’t show up very well in the photos.
