Drawing and first wash
Several washes later... Starting to take shape.
Detail complete and glazing washes to get the value relationships just right.
I chose this sunset scene of Nobska Light in Woods Hole, MA as my first 2010 Cape Cod watercolor. I have painted this lighthouse before, but wanted the challenge of a convincing Sunset with the late day reflected light on the structure. I am really happy with this one and plan to spend a good deal of Sunday working on new paintings in the Studio.
With a camera or a paint brush Cape Cod NEVER fails to inspire me. The trick is to live up to that inspiration.
