“For this painting, I wanted to convey the solidity of the lighthouse on the rocks, and a dreamy meditative feeling of being alone by the sea.”
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.
I love how clouds look in approaching storms. There is so much definition you almost feel like you can touch them, like they are a solid thing. The colors in them bring a feeling of a cool breeze and the smell of rain. I also love the colors in deep water. Couple this with the clouds and it makes for a thick blend of color and feeling.
