Stanely Park Lighthouse, Finished

I finished this painting tonight, although it started out as a quick exercise it turned out to take much longer than I though. The sky is my favourite part of this painting... the colours were kept simple (cerulean blue, titanium zinc white, and just a hint of alizarin crimson in the top part of the sky. My goal was to keep the brush strokes simple and loose to capture the more whispy clouds in the sky. I managed to do that.... but, as I tend to do, I tightened up on my brush strokes when I got to the lighthouse.
