Old Steel Bridge

Mouse over to see before image

This bridge reminds me of growing up in Portland and the old steel bridges across the Willamette River. I used my new texture Orange Stucco (below) along with my texture Storm Clouds from this post. I've used Storm Clouds on a number of images and it always looks good. Brightens up the image and gives just the right amount of texture. On top of the whole thing, I placed Chaos by Jerry of Shadowhouse Creations. If you haven't seen his textures, you must check them out, Jerry does awesome work! Chaos seemed to pull the whole things together. Isn't that the way with art...and life...a little chaos seems to bring out the best.

You can download Orange Stucco for free here.


  1. I think you should name this one Just Bein' Free... after the initials on the bridge...
