Thanks, Gita, Brian, and Val.

YIKES, I just looked at it again this morning and the photo shows a diagonal-looking slat on the waterwheel. I swear it was not there when I went to bed.  I will fix it right away.

How did I miss this?  It is so beautiful and peaceful.   :smitten:  That green change really brightened the whole painting.

This is going to be a Happy New Year card for my niece.  She is getting married in 2018 near this lighthouse.


I think line and wash is the perfect medium for lighthouses. 

I feel good about this, but still have a few hours if you think it needs some changes.   Ooops, the little shed's lines are not straight enough.  I'll fix that.  Oh, and the windows on the large building aren't correct.   Hmmm, guess I was in too much of a hurry to finish it.  I'll fix it in the morning.

Amazing how putting your work up on the forum makes you suddenly see any faults, isn't it? This lighthouse looks pretty good to me, whether you can pick slight inaccuracies or not. Some imperfections are ok, you know. You are not a photographer... Oops.. correction,  you may be/are a  photographer sometimes, but not on this one. ;D I'm sure your niece will love it.

Thanks, Linley.

Everything looks better in the morning!  Actually, it must have been the photo that distorted the shapes.  Seems to have righted itself during the night.

Thanks, Val.  I use Strathmore Watercolor greeting cards for my cards.  No buckling, even though it's only 140 lb.

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  A lovely card for your niece Mea.  She will no doubt keep it forever in remembrance of where she got married.  It is such a sweet thought to make her this lovely card.

I like the neat lines and the strong red standing out, Mea. Your niece will treasure this! :clap:
