Watercolor Wednesday

Maine Lighthouse

Maine Lighthouse

My youngest son is an up-and-coming photographer and will be attending photography school in the fall. You can see more of his work here.

In his quest to fill his portfolio, we’ve been going on day trips to beautiful locations across New England. One day found us scouring the Maine coastline for lighthouses. I can’t remember the name for this one but I’m sure my Maine friends will enlighten me. This is my photo, not his, and it seemed like a natural for watercolor class.

Here are my results. Again I struggled with being a control freak. It took all my powers of self-persuasion to not go back in and overwork the sky and water. Those were done in one shot. Not so with the rest, but I at least think I captured a good sense of light.
