"Morning Fog" image

poor photo, but good result

This colored pencil art work is based on a disappointing day of photo shooting.  I went to San Francisco's Golden Gate bridge, but the day was foggy and uninteresting - or so I thought.  Back home, in reviewing the photos, I came across this view, which had real possibilities.  It turned into a fun, challenging, and rewarding experience.  Lots of mood created by the fog gave the whole scene an added effect.
