Jim’s lighthouse revisited

Jim's lighthouse revisited

Inspired by my art teacher, Julie, I decided to try the lighthouse in another venue. Although I like the more natural environment I miss the sparkling ocean water which in my mind is off to the left. This will be cause for a third attempt which combines ocean water, a lighthouse, and rocks. I also prefer the more traditional little lighthouse building structure than the sea shanty.

Any tips on painting rocks? Feel free to offer suggestions.

Since I was little I liked to visualize and create things. Painting with watercolors is what makes me happy now. That, and spending time gardening and reading. I love long walks, biking, and the beach. Cape Cod is where I spend a lot of my leisure time.

    The first one with the sea seemed more real. I liked that better. The second one had individual sections I liked (the lighthouse & the surroundings) but not together. Seemed out of sync.

    When I compare the two, one of the things I like better in the 2nd painting is the more natural flow of the land – it’s more graceful & textured than the ground in the first one. Maybe you can combine the two with the sea & the other house (not the shanty)?


  3. I adore the elegant simplicity of this piece exactly as it is.
