|"Portland Head" by Hilary J. England, 2015, oil on canvas, 24" x 36"|
I just completed this painting today, it was a little project I did just for myself. I have a large space in my bedroom, on the wall straight ahead, and I was completely sick of looking at a blank wall there, so I decided I would paint myself a scene, something that was lovely and close to my heart, and would bring me some nice dreams when I feel asleep meditating to it. So, I looked back through my old studies, and knowing I wanted some kind of water scene, found some interesting drawings and sketches of Portland head, and decided to paint that lovely lighthouse.
I had been wanting to do this for a long time, and the beauty of being a painter is in the future, when I want a different scene, I will just paint another one! ;-) So, there are perks to being an artist, haha.
I hope you enjoy this painting as much as I enjoyed creating it!
