Moonlit Bridge

A new one from imagination! I was really unsure about a lot of stuff while painting this. I need to study night scenes as well as water. BTW, In case it isnt reading, the whole right side is under the cast shadow of a mountain.

  1. Awesome idea! I like the tree in the bottom left 'cause I get the night feel and illumination.

    Shadows at night are close to black because there's NO scattering of the blue sky that happens during the day (fill light). With the shadows within the shadow of the mountain, my gut says that they wouldn't be there except where the torches meet the brides and rocks, but I'm not 100% sure. But there are a bunch of other factors that I'm unsure about as well, like whether the reflection of the water would count as another light source. Still looks awesome. :D
