Cape Disappointment Lighthouse Commission

Seaside Lighthouse Commission

My client wanted a watercolor done of the Cape Disappointment Lighthouse for their parents at Christmas. Here are some of the steps taken to create this painting

I received an example showing what they were thinking of but they wanted a warmer looking day maybe with some sun.

I found a sunnier shot of the same area that had a great array of sunny color.

I also took a look through my own photographs to find a shot taken of that same bay while we were on vacation on the coast of Oregon. This just so happened to be a beautiful sunny day when my husband and I hiked up to the lighthouse a few years ago with a couple of friends.
