Lighthouse colour study.
On a tiny rocky island in a cold, stormy sea there stood a red and white striped lighthouse... Here is Magnus and Grandpa's home. The artwork is a hybrid of watercolour for the sea base and sky with digital for the lighthouse, island and waves. I want the sea and sky to have a liquid, changable quality to allow for the various weather and sea conditions (a storm is coming...) and also to soften the artwork up a bit when it is viewed as a whole (I have also been experimenting with watercolour in the characters flesh to both soften it and to give that windblown, raw look).
