Split Rock Lighthouse – 4″ x 6″ Watercolor & Ink

The reference  photo was from Surob at WetCanvas.  It’s the Split Rock Lighthouse on the shores of Lake Superior in Minnesota.   I know it’s hard to believe…. but I had so much fun painting this!    It really was kinda this color, too.  🙂

About Robin Williams

In 2005, Robin Williams, the Oscar-winning American actor known for his wild improvisations and amazing mimicry, was voted by fellow comedians and comedy insiders as one of the top 50 comedy acts ever. He was born in 1951 in Chicago, and he first garnered attention as a stand-up comic in San Francisco. A guest role as the alien Mork on the TV series Happy Days was so popular it led to his own show, Mork and Mindy. He has starred in many successful films, including Mrs. Doubtfire and Good Will Hunting. He has three children.

    I bet the view from that cliff is amazing. I think I got a little more than a spark of madness. Probably a little too much!

    So cute. Love the texture in the sky. How did you achieve that?

    Yours is much prettier than the photo! I like how this one is a bit bigger for more of the cliff and clouds. I do like these ones where you can see the paper texture.
