"Western Skies"

"The lighthouse at Yaquina Head on the Oregon coast stands as a silent sentinel to the glorious beauty of a sunset in 'Western skies'."

This is a small gouache painting on 140# hot-pressed watercolor paper.  The sky is the dominant feature in the composition, with the lighthouse at Yaquina Head as the secondary element.  My digital camera has become a very important tool in my research.  Compared to film, the images I can capture are truer in color, and there is a greater range of light.  Along with my sketches and color notes, when I begin to paint in my studio,  I have everything I need to recreate the mood and atmosphere of the fleeting moment of the setting sun over the ocean
