I had to do the lighthouse. Fun exercise and I'm nearly done. I have the fisherman left to do or...perhaps leave him out. Still deciding on that... I decided the picture needed a composition change to make it into an more interesting painting, and I wanted the lighthouse to be a more prominent piece in the scene. So I painted the scene vertical, which helped elongate the lighthouse, and make it seem taller than it is from photo. I Also moved the sail boat to it's far right....Still deciding on that fisherman..hmm
12" x 9" on 400series Strathmore. I love the texture of this more than my Canson mi-tientes. I used mostly mungyo and a little bit of senns as highlights. You'll see the paper come through on some parts, mainly the middle sections. I'm doing that on purpose...basically letting the color and texture of the paper provide certain effects when the painting is looked at as a whole.
This was a lot of fun! Thanks Ratchet for hosting and providing this months pics.
