Almost Finished with the Wind Point Lighthouse Watercolor
Windpoint, Wisconsin Lighthouse Watercolor

Got the painting bug last weekend, so I started a watercolor painting of the Windpoint Lighthouse. I've never painted with watercolors before, so it took a lot of getting used to. I have to keep remembering to use light washes of color not bold globs like oils or acrylics. So every stroke I have to think through and build up from light to dark and front to back which is opposite of everything I've ever done before!

Here's the Windpoint Wisconsin lighthouse photo I used as a reference.
