This painting was inspired by the sunset in Texas. The sky seemed so soft and pearly I just had to paint it!
Lighthouses are fascinating to me and produce a feeling of calm in an otherwise tumultuous scene. Having grown up by the sea in Crimea, I wanted to capture the unmovable safety of a lighthouse in this seascape.
In this piece I wanted to capture low contrast and a feeling of togetherness in the face of big and strong nature. To me, it feels like a cool summer dusk on the beach and a sense of connection with one another and with nature.
