Canadian Province Nova Scotia is home to over 160 historic lighthouses, but no beacon is as photographed as the one in the vibrant fishing village of Peggy’s Cove.

Built in 1915, Peggy’s Point Lighthouse still keeps watch over surging ocean waves and working lobster boats. Amble over giant rocks worn smooth by the sea and share in the view.

In this video tutorial you will learn how to paint the beautifully seascape scene, creating the sense of freshness of the ocean breeze on a sunny day. The painting process will cover the Ala Prima techniques such as, infusion washes, lifting and “dry on damp” techniques.

The painting process divided in a few short episodes covering each part of the painting. This structure provides you a stress free and easy pattern to follow.

This video tutorial suites to all ages and all skills levels. Although some previous experience in watercolour would be a benefit.
