Series of New England Lighthouse Watercolor Sketches

I am working on a series of watercolor sketches of New England lighthouses. Some of them will be shown in Sea View Gallery in Rocky Point, New Hampshire. I hope to see you at the opening. But there is a catch…

Rocky Point and the Sea View Gallery only exist in an upcoming book by Mystery writer Jane Cleland. The book will be released in 2010. In the meantime, Jane’s latest book is Killer Keepsakes. Check it out at Jane Cleland’s website.

As for the lighthouses in my New England watercolor series (like Nantoqua Point, ME in my previous post), they are fictional places. But the sketches are real and will be available soon. FYI: Only the watercolor’s in this series are fictional. All my other lighthouse watercolors are real places (e.g, Gurnsey Harbor Lighthouse)

In the meantime, Jane’s latest book, Killer Keepsakes, is due out in April 2009. Check it out at Jane Cleland’s website.

Lunch in Grenada

Painted this while sitting at the Ocean Grill Restaurant in Georgetown, Grenada today. Ship sails for Tobago in little over an hour. It’s a nice little place. Burgers are good, with a distinctly Caribbean flavor. If you arrive at the main cruise ship pier in St George’s, then you have to walk through the tunnel to get here. You don’t know about the tunnel?

Bonaire –

This scene was drawn at Coco’s Beach Cafe in Kralendijk, Bonaire.  I  liked the composition; framed by palm trees and a large sea grape tree. I was only going to do a pencil sketch, but my drink took a long time to arrive so I added watercolor overdrawn with ink.
