Here is a wc of the Portland Head light in Portland Maine. I have to work on the roof lines to make them agree with the distant eye level ine. Plus the sky around the base df the lighthouse and the black ring around it. Any and all comments are welcome.

Didn't notice the ring until you pointed it out. I think it looks good.

Nice job on the sky and the rocks. You have that steep cliff just about right. I didn't notice the ring in the sky either. I don't think it is necessary to fix it, it looks fine the way it is.

Your buildings and the lighthouse are leaning a little. Mine tend to do that too :) . At least they are all leaning the same way.

I think you could make the water a little darker and bluer. The pale green looks a little too "tropical" for Maine.

These are just little suggestions, but all in all I think you did a fine painting here of one of my favorite lighthouses..

Bill, are your buildings leaning or is it because of the way you took the photo? I agree with Michelle... Nice Maritime feel and beautiful painting!:)
