New watercolor ~ Golden Gate Lore

Golden Gate Lore #1 ~ Watercolor by John Klobucher

Hello friends and art fans! Here’s the latest Art of Lore

I’ve been thinking about starting to work in a more abstract style and this Golden Gate Bridge scene is a small step in that direction. It’s the second time I’ve painted this famous view, looking south across the bay toward San Francisco. In this fresh take, I was going for a fluid, slightly twisted feel with vibrant colors and lots of texture.

It was a fun little exercise. I hope you like this new direction!
