Red Light, Michigan

Exact proportions notwithstanding, this small watercolor is loosely based on the Holland Harbor Lighthouse, in Michigan.

Watercolor, 5 x 7", Fabriano paper

  1. nice! I like the way it is framed by the trees and especially like the way you rendered the water.

  2. Thank you Bill. The way I see it, lighthouses are such beautiful subjects that they make low-risk watercolors. You really have to work hard to mess up the scene.
    Having said that, never underestimate my ability to mess things up!

    This painting demonstrates great reflections on the water. Most lighthouses are on a hill of some sort I’m surprise to see this one at sea level. I love the sky. Beautiful work!

  4. Jewell, I am guessing this is due to the flatness of the terrain. Thank you for the visit and comment.
