Rhode Island Adventure - Painting Number One - Point Judith

Point Judith Lighthouse, watercolor
10.75"w x 8.75"h, $150

A couple of weekends ago, I popped up to my aunt and uncle's home in Rhode Island for the weekend. I wanted to explore and paint some of the beautiful places near their home, and with the leaves changing, it seemed like the perfect opportunity.

Saturday - First Stop, Point Judith 

Usually when I go to Rhode Island, it's either raining (summer) or freeeezing (winter). The last time I was at Point Judith it was December, freezing, and the wind was blowing like a hurricane. There are pix of us (somewhere) huddled around the base of the lighthouse, out of the wind.

Very "Hopperesque" isn't it?

I was delighted this time when, despite some clouds, the sun peeked through enough to get some great pictures for future reference AND I was able to do a small watercolor!

Almost finished!

Those shadows on the middle building changed completely in less than an hour!
