This artwork, Light House, is the third component in the Winter Night Triptych, a series of three petite watercolors. My intention was to make images that interlocked visually and thematically, revealing a narrative. However, it is also important to me that the paintings are able to stand alone, if they are viewed or framed, separately.
Here is the black and white digital mock up I made of the composition, and the original thumbnail study from my sketchbook.
Pictured below, are the three images that make up the Winter Night Triptych. In retrospect, I would like to have shown the white mountain, small and in the distance, of the painting with the cottontail rabbit. It is implied with the mountain and the radio tower, but I believe it would have been a nice visual echo if it were in all three pictures.
