I'd like to use this old photo as reference. I think it's from the late 30's, just after the bridge was completed.

I did have a wet, happy time slopping paint around - on the paper, on me, on the floor ...  I was trying to create the effect of rain. After all, Vancouver is on the Wet Coast! 

I did this without any sketching beforehand, and it looks it.

I think the idea will work. I need more intensity, depth and strength in the bridge. This is just a small practice run, to see what the colors do. All in all, it was a frustrating session this afternoon, hence the "Aarrgh"!

As always, your comments are most welcome.
