The lighthouse in the grasslands was my first painting when my parents sent me for private art lessons at The Sippy Cup Place, Quincy. In this painting, I used the painting style that was used by Vincent Van Gogh. This style is called impressionistic painting style. This painting for me was very easy. First, I sketched it. Then, I painted it. I made sure that I cleaned my brush after I made one stroke. Finally, I made yellow leaves to show sunlight. My teacher, Ms. Sandra Donnelly, guided me through this painting by discussing colors, color scheme, light, and shadow and brush strokes. I am very thankful to her. It took me about 2 one hour sessions to complete this work. I did this painting in January of 2013. I hope you liked this painting as much as I liked painting it.
