The Presque Isle Light is one of three lighthouses in Erie PA. The lighthouse is located on the northern shore of Presque Isle State Park. It was built in 1872 and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.
On July 25, 2014 the Commonwealth officially announce the beginning of a long term lease of the Presque Isle Lighthouse to a newly formed 501 c 3 organization which after planned restorations will open to the public for tours and special events. You can read more about it here.
After the renovations are complete I will have to paint the lighthouse again. A bit of the outside structure will change plus I will be able to take the tour and photograph the inside.
As for the painting itself I enjoy watercolor on canvas. Unlike paper it is a bit more forgiving. After this type of painting is complete I spray it with a UV protecting acrylic spray, I like using the gloss spray, then I brush an acrylic matte varnish over the painting. This method gives me a satin finish and the painting can be framed without glass just like you would an acrylic painting.
Enjoy and share with someone who might be interested.
