Lighthouses, Final

It's been a weekend of lighthouses. I went out Saturday to the Head Harbour Lighthouse and did this oil. This time, I wasn't intentionally trying to avoid the cliche; I was just interested in the cool colors and shapes the fog created. All the coolness is relieved by a pale yellow band in the water, and the red-violet "Swiss Cross" of the lighthouse plays opposite the dominating greens and blues.
