Peggy's Cove Lighthouse

I am mentoring someone who wanted to paint this lighthouse in this morning's session, where we painted together. I like the angles of this lighthouse and how the light hits it. Not bad for one morning's work and it was enjoyable to do.

Good job on the lighthouse. It's a good subject to use as a class demo. I've never painted this lighthouse, but I think I will someday. I feel that it's special to me because I visited it on my honeymoon in Nova Scotia, way back in 1965.

Thanks Michelle. If I were to do this one over again I think I would do the rocks differently, including drawing them differently, but it was a good one to do for the lesson. We first tried scraping the rocks, a la Szabo, but that didn't work well in this case so we did the direct painting of them.
