“Old Baldy with Laurel Oak Forest”, When a storm hits the island, the forest acts as a buffer. Oil on Canvas 18”x 24”.

“Reflections”, A Window at the Bald Head Lighthouse. Oil on Canvas 24”x 30”.

To paint the Old Baldy follow the instructions:

  1. Start by drawing the lighthouse.
  2. Do your under-paint or imprimatura with a wash of acrylic gold and silver. Acrylics are very good for under-painting because they dry faster. They create a worm color that once you put the oils in the top, they look brighter.

Start painting in the following order because it is going to be easier for you:

  1. Using oils or acrylics, start painting the sky with the clouds.
  2. Continue with the lighthouse and the trees.
  3. Sign your work of art.
