Swans under a Bridge - Prague, Czech Republic

This is for Virtual Paintout May 2010 Czech Republic challenge. It's oil on 10"x14" canvas board. The location for this painting is Rašínovo nábřeží, Prague, Prague, Česká republika.

This Google map picture caught my eyes because of its strong contrasting elements: the strong and dark foreground bridge, and bright white swans, and sky and city scene through under the bridge. People sitting and feeding the swans add some more interest to the painting. I also added a small corner of the road at the bottom right had corner, as a reminder there was a Google van there. (similar to another Virtual Paintout painting I did a couple of months ago)
