Charles Bridge, Prague
About this artwork
Artist Joe Giuffrida paints a scenic view of Charles Bridge extending the Vltava River. The bridge's archways provide the energy or sense of movement versus the still shapes of the city buildings. Joe decides to go with a mixed-media approach to the piece based on the opaque quality of the components - carving out the buildings, trees, and the bridge from solid forms. Depth of field was not a concern, rather capturing the interesting flat shape of the structures, says Joe.
