Bass Harbor Light (Sold)

Bass Harbor Light is located on the quiet side of Mount Desert Island, Maine. The lighthouse sits atop a bold cliff, protecting passing ships from the rocky waters. It's one of the first paintings I did upside down (paper, not me). I found that the building in particular was much easier as I focused on the lines in my reference photo rather than how I thought it should look. I remember it took 3 weeks to paint, 5-10 hours a day.
