"Prospect Harbor Lighthouse"

Prospect Harbor, Maine

Watercolor painting of Prospect Harbor Lighthouse in Maine by Beth Whitney

"Prospect Harbor Lighthouse" is an original Maine watercolor painting by Beth Whitney. 

The surf pounds along the rocky shore of Prospect Point.  The Prospect Harbor Lighthouse is located just beyond the Schoodic Peninsula.  It's part of Maine's spectacular Bold Coast that goes all along downeast up to the Canadian Border. 

This painting required 5 reference photos to get this view just right.  I much prefer to use one reference photo, but in all of my options, the tide was too low, water flat, weather was overcast, or there were cars blocking the garden and drive.  It's funny to compare my photos to see how the trees and shrubs have grown over the years.  I'm glad I finally painted it!  I love this lighthouse - the dramatic point is wonderful and should get more attention than it does.

The original painting has sold, but I have giclee prints available in a range of sizes.
