Tidepool Reflections












If you have ever visited Pemaquid Lighthouse in southern Maine, you may have noticed the tidepools that form between those famous striped granite rocks. And you would have seen people searching for reflections of the lighthouse in those tidepools. I have always wanted to paint one of those tidepool reflections. This painting is 5x7 and was done for my SWAP partner who lives in Australia. I like the way this came out so much that I'm thinking of doing a larger one.

As you know this is one of my favorite places in Maine. You did a great job on the reflection as well as the rocks. Definitely do this one larger!!!

I am not familiar with this area, but this is a great painting. I really like the rocks and the up-side-down angle. Nice!
