Coming Soon ......September Plein Air Workshop

This afternoon out at Cattle Point, the very tip of San Juan Island, looking back to the Cattle Point Lighthouse. Not an easy place to paint, as it seems always to be windy. A plein air oil on canvas, 14 x 18.
Thinking about why the lighthouse feels like it is tipping forward. It is not very often here on San Juan Island that we get a chance to use the third upward point of vanishing point perspective. As I was sketching for a large version of this view, I realized looking up at the building, to include the diminishing third point up of vanishing point perspective.(smaller at the top...)

Hope you can join us for 2 great days of painting. Call 378 2638 to sign up. We have a wonderful group gathered, from Olympia to Roche Harbor. So far it couldn't be prettier than this time of year.
