Kittery Point – Day 4. Portsmouth Harbor Light take 2


I wasn’t going to let lighthouse views on my back doorstep go to waste so I was out bright and early to have another go at this one.     I happily found a shady spot with a reasonable view down by the tennis court and set up ready to go.     This time I wanted to make the lighthouse more prominent and hopefully cut down on the foreground.     That didn’t quite happen – we still have that dreaded foreground.    This was a strange one – usually if I’m enjoying a painting the end result is good.  I was enjoying this enormously and some parts were coming out well.  The sky behaved and the lighthouse itself I was very pleased with.   It kind of fell apart when it came to the house/sea/foreground which was a bit of a shame.   Never mind – it might grow on me over the next couple of days.  (Edit:  3 days later and no, it hasn’t grown on me.)
