Decommissioned Lighthouse - Prince Edward County 10" x 12" o/p
The old lighthouse is now surrounded by small cottages and fishermen homes. Not many outside visitors or artists that I know of show up. It is a rather out of the way kind of place.
For those who do venture there will be rewarded by a warm, quiet scene that time has past.
Just you and...the Canada geese !
This support for this painting was a Masonite gessoed panel that had been pre stained with a burnt sienna wash and left to dry.
I used my limited palette and also added a light yellow green and a chromium oxide. Odourless Solvent was my medium .
I really liked the look of the coloured texture that the gessoe produced in areas.
