11X14 Strathmore 140# cold press..

Started line drawing Friday from a photo I took last summer. Finished last night, Saturday.

Of course, a disclaimer is necessary due to the poor quality of my photographic skills, needless to say, this picture is a poor representation of the actual painting. :) (Just jesting, however, it is a bit darker than the original.)

Also, happy Father's Day to all those who qualify..

CC's Welcome.

Thank you, Judy, for commenting.. I'm pretty new to art in any form having started last September with graphite and since April I've been piddling with water color. Besides some quick practice pieces, this is my second serious attempt. (The first one is still incomplete since it is part of a class that is taking forever.) Oh, the paint is by M. Graham, assuming that's what you asked.

Yes I asked because you have posted this in the Plus Gallery so i wondered if you used something else beside watercolour?

Straight watercolour gets posted in the Watercolour Gallery..:)

Wow! I can't believe this is one of your earliest attempts at watercolor. I'd say don't stop! This painting is very very nice and I also can't believe how quickly you did it. I especially love the grass and it's reflection in the water at the forefront of the painting. You're going to be hanging in galleries in no time if you keep painting. Good luck!

:thumbsup: Nice work!

There is also another lighthouse right by the bridge in Newport that is fun to draw and paint.

Great rendition of the cliffs and I really love the sky. Definitely Oregon! From one who's been there.

Here's a link to the story about the 2 lighthouses.
