Friday Watercolor: Port Lavaca Lighthouse

I don't know why this looks so pink on the computer! It's not in real life.

This is the top of the old lighthouse at Port Lavaca, Texas. It was removed when the lighthouse was abandoned and set up at the edge of town where it now serves as a historical marker and visitor's center.

I started a class in beginning watercolors at the Watercolor Artists Society of Houston (a/k/a WASH, don't you love it?) this week and decided to use the "Classic" paint palette recommended by our instructor who said it was the most forgiving. Its a little bit different than the palette used by my online class, but it certainly suits this subject well.

This might be your best one yet!

About the color, you may need to do some color correction in any photo editing program you use to adjust the hue.
