Evening Lighthouse 1 - A Work in Progress

I wanted to do a little work on a panting and I chose this one that I started last year (see posts on 18 April and 24 May 2016).

Using a mixture of French ultramarine blue and burnt sienna I put in the windows on the lighthouse, the edge of the lantern room, the roof on the lighthouse keeper's home and the concrete foundation for the lighthouse.

With a mix of cadmium red and alizarin crimson I added the roof on the top of the lighthouse and the base around the lantern room.

With cadmium yellow I put in the lantern and a thin line of the reflected light from the sunset on the left side of the lighthouse.

I will post this painting at a later date once I paint in the water and the crashing surf at the base of the rocks.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and look at the artwork. I hope you will return often.
