"Bass Harbor Lighthouse" (sold)

Mount Desert Island, Maine

Painting of Bass harbor Lighthouse on MDI in Maine by artist Beth Whitney | DowneastWatercolors.com

The Bass Harbor Lighthouse is located on the quiet side of Mount Desert Island, Maine. The light sits atop a bold cliff, protecting passing ships from the rocky waters. This is one of the first full-sheet watercolor paintings I did, and most of it was done upside down (the paper, not me). I remember it took 3 weeks to paint, 5-10 hours a day.

You can see more views of this lighthouse: Bass Harbor, Left and Bass Harbor, Right, both of which are also available as matted giclee prints.
