Point Betsie


I painted here at Point Betsie, just North of Frankfort, MI, last summer. Recently finished this one in the studio. It's a hard spot to find a perfect vantage point. The lighthouse is raised up and from the beach, mostly obscured by trees and shrubbery. I stood out on a thin seawall to take photos to get this angle. Then I made some adjustments to the tree locations for a better composition.

Nice piece David! Glad you conquered the tree's.
They are a nuisance for painting. Someday I'll give it a shot.

I love this one! There's just something about the composition and the colors. Sweet!
