"The inspiration for this painting came from walking up to the lighthouse to watch the sunrise each morning."

"Having done a couple of paintings with Peter, I blocked out the colours I wanted to use and decided on my focal point...the lighthouse."

"I then added in the detail and used some artistic licence to eliminate all the houses that are actually in the bushes as I wanted to capture the natural elements. For the greenery I used Monet style brush strokes."

"Quite happy with how it turned out as it's the first time I've tried recomposing a painting, rather than try and paint it exactly as I saw it."
