This lighthouse is taken from South Batan, Batanes. I remember the dogs who greeted us when we came there. I really love dogs and that time I was missing our beloved beagle left at dog boarding when we are on vacation so I just pet them I gave them some bread which they love.
Painting this brings all the memories from Batanes that I really cherish.
The clouds are inspired from the video tutorials of Terry Harrison, he makes the most beautiful landscape for me.
I made a lot of color bleeds in this painting because of my impatience. It is important to let the the first layers dry before adding the next one because when the two interact, ugly color bleeds happen. Color bleeds also create a beautiful effect for florals and other scenarios but for this one its a bad idea.
I would definitely do this again to correct all my previous mistakes and make it better.
