Hello, and here is the starting sketch of the lighthouse on an eighteen by twenty-four inch linen support. I love linen because it's smoother than canvas and allows even blending, and fine detail where you need it.
Now you see the lighthouse coming to life with some dark areas, and the ocean has also had it's deep undercoat. Next lesson, I'll tackle the sky. Hope you'll join me next lesson! I'll be wearing my Reeves apron, will you?
