San Juan Islands Light House

I have a friend who loves painting light house scenes. He has favorites that he repeats and they do not stay around for long. I have used it for a watercolor subject but love to tweak it, so that it ends up as my light house, only remotely similar to the original. There are several stacked under my bed.

This is a study in values. All of the flotsam wood in the foreground resulted from scraping the paper after laying a coat of Paynes Grey over raw sienna.
