Golden Gate Bridge Plein-Air Paintings

Golden Gate Bridge Painting by Irina Sztukowski framed art


Wonderful day in San Francisco resulted in a fresh new painting of Golden Gate Bridge. It is always great to paint in open air feeling the fast changing weather and to be one with Nature:



And now completed painting prints are in various formats in my gallery

I am lucky to have an opportunity to paint Golden Gate Bridge so many times in the last several years. Most of the instances I was outside, catching the best weather trying to capture the essence of the beautiful City At The Bay and graceful lines of Golden Gate Bridge. And I believe each time I went painting, an artwork had something to tell to the viewer; it definitely spoke to the observers conveying my fascination by the beauty of San Francisco Bay Area. 

Here are just a few examples of my Golden Gate Bridge exploration, the paintings that became quite popular among my dear Art Collectors and Followers:

All the above paintings were done en-plein-air style, e.g. painting in open air, outside, right the same place and time. 

And the following paintings were done as commission artworks of Golden Gate Bridge:

Here are a few of my art pieces that came straight out of my imagination in my studio. Some of them are realistic paintings of Golden Gate Bridge and some, well, quite abstract :)

Surprisingly enough, my Art Collectors do love the abstract pieces for home decor as much as they like the classical realistic art.

I am very happy about this!
