This view has always inspired me. I must have done a half dozen attempts painting this scene in oil paint. One successful painting is hanging at Mast Cove Gallery. This attempt was done in watercolor. Here I used the foreground shore line to create a directional line to take your eye to the focal point. Although it seems to be almost in the middle of the picture , it doesn't bother me.
The placement of the telephone pole keeps your eye from going off the canvas. The shadow of the bridge points the way to the center of interest.
