A Lighthouse painting and coastal scenes

These are all little paintings that came of my recent trip to Halifax. I spent some time making sketches on the coast between Purcell's Cove and Herring Cove. There is a walking path which goes right up over the crest of the headland in the pictures above. These paintings do not give one any idea of the scale of these rocks. If I were to try to paint figures to scale on the headland they would be invisible. Perhaps someday I shall do one which shows how massive the granite bones of the coast really are.
