I hiked up to the lighthouse today with my artist friend Marianne. We call each other cousins, though truthfully, her husband and I are really the cousins. Marianne and I kept hiking past the lighthouse, up to Whitehead to paint. It was breezy and beautiful. We both began oil paintings looking down on Gull Rock in the distance. I'll post that painting later.
Upon returning to the house, I did a quick sketch of the sunset over Manana. I think I'll spend a little more time in it, building the darks so that the sunset glows even more. The real sparkle was in the thin strip of cloud above the sun. I'll try for a better picture of it tomorrow under natural light.
As always, thanks for looking.
