30 Paintings in 30 Days - Day 6 - Lighthouse Blues

This painting was done for Leslie Saeta's, 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge.
This was done from a photo I had taken of my favorite lighthouse in Maine, the Pemaquid Lighthouse. I try to go for a visit whenever I'm up there, and missed it this past trip after Christmas. I just have to visit this way instead.

Here are the portraits I did when the NYC Urban Sketchers met on Saturday.

 These last two were done in a very dim bar and I really couldn't tell how they looked. I didn't retouch either of them. I used pencil, watercolor pencil and regular watercolors on all of these.
