Yaquina Head Lighthouse Oil Painting 20x16 Inches Canvas

I finished the Yaquina Head Lighthouse painting today.  The lighthouse is about 90 foot tall to tip top, the light is at 81ft above ground and 162 ft above sea level.  It is a magnificent tower sitting high on a cliff overlooking the sea.  I want to express thanks to my good neighbor Gary that gave me some great pictures from their vacation for reference material.  The sky and the lighthouse is painted with a more realistic smooth brush strokes and the cliff foreground has texture with an impressionistic look.  The painting is 20x16 on stretched canvas and done in oils.  I hope you like it.  Email me if you are interested in purchasing this one or any of my other paintings.  Those that have sold are usually in print.

Let us pray before we paint,

There's just something about light houses isn't there? You've captured an excellent portrait of this one!

Thanks for your gracious comment about my Yaquina Lighthouse painting. Being an old sailor, I am partial to lighthouses and plan to paint more of them.
