Painting No. 67 - Cockspur Lighthouse
No. 67 is a view of the Cockspur Lighthouse off Tybee Island. We had spent a vacation there a few years back and I took some shots of this really small lighthouse from a boat. The whole thing is basically on a glorified oyster-bed and when the tide rises it looks like the lighthouse is in the middle of the water.
I painted this on a thin gray background. The look of the air was very dense and gray with only a little bit of light coming in from the left. It was a fun change of pace to do this one.
