Pemaquid Point

A few weeks ago I painted a smaller version of this scene from Pemaquid Point, Maine on yupo. This one is on Arches 140 lb. rough, and is a half sheet. Pemaquid Lighthouse and the rocks that surround it are my favorite landscape subjects. I was probably standing with my back to the lighthouse looking down to the left when I took the reference photo for this painting. I also love to climb down on the rocks, find a comfy place to sit, and do a watercolor sketch in my journal. It's getting harder and harder for this out-of-shape, almost 62 year old to get down there and back up again though.

Hi Michelle, I just wanted to comment on this painting. It is beautiful, it's perfect. I wish I could go to that place!
