Foretell - Writer's Island and Sunday Sketches


The following sketch is in progress, but I wanted to post it as a beginning sketch for Sunday Sketches hosted by Sophia over at Blue Chair Diary



in progress by Petrina Lesko 2011

Oh, but what stories this old bridge could foretell of the small town waiting beyond.  Another road not yet taken, but surely a decidedly exciting world awaits on  the other side.  Such character beheld within the walls of its structure, eluding to the characters of this old town beyond its wooden frame... welcoming anyone who wishes to pass this way.

And with these words, my post shall fit right in over at Writer's Island and this weeks Prompt #8 for 2011: Foretell.  Hope everyone enjoys my submission.

Oh yes, I would love to go through that bridge (we don't get 'closed in bridges here in the UK' - they look very mysterious)..I had a peek at your 'Opportunity Knocks' flash and I thought the corridor and the suggestion of 'what if' paired up nicely with your sketch of the bridge..good luck with the next drawing..Jae

Ah, seems like such a peaceful place to be, sitting atop a small hill looking at the bridge and the river~ Great work!

Impressive detail in the brick and roof.
Bridges are interesting structures and you've caught their intrigue.

Nice sketch. Brings to mind Robert Frost and the wintry Vermont vacations of my youth. Great sense of nostalgia.

Lovely sketch (wish I had your talent) and I love the imagining of lies will lie beyond. Well done!

That was supposed to say, I love the imagining of what will lie beyond. (Sheesh, I should probably go to bed now....too tired to type.)
