Golden Gate Bridge Commission Painting by Bryan Boutwell

Golden Gate Bridge Painting by artist Bryan Boutwell, San Francisco, Russian Hill neighborhood,

Iconic San Fran is the title of this abstract painting of the Golden Gate Bridge created by artist Bryan Boutwell. I was commissioned to paint a large scale abstract of the Golden Gate Bridge for a client in the Russian Hill neighborhood in San Francisco. I built a diptych style painting that measured 8FT x 4FT. I first built the 2 custom stretchers and then stretched canvas over them as the medium. I wanted to create geometric shapes that interlocked like puzzle pieces, the way a bridge locks 2 separate pieces of land into one. I uploaded a video I created that shows the process from beginning to end.  I used high speed time lapse photography to show 4 weeks of work in 5 minutes. Hope you enjoy! Thanks for checking out! "
