In this painting of Nubble Lighthouse in Maine, I used the foreground rocks to create a sense of distance. By overlapping the lighter, warmer island with a dark, cooler foreground, the island is pushed back and the sense of sunlight is enhanced. Once again the power of darks is employed to showcase the focal point.
A personal note: I may have time to paint and post one more painting before next Friday when I will undergo open heart surgery. Please don't give up on me. While recuperating, I may resort to commenting on some older paintings.
Meanwhile, have a merry, joyful, and grateful Christmas and holiday season. Keep painting!
