Portpatrick Lighthouse at Dusk

Portpatrick Lighthouse at Dusk

Love that lively sky, a super pastel. I live about a 30 minute drive from Port Patrick and I still haven't painted the lighthouse! In fact there's lots to paint there!

You are so lucky, Fiona. It's the first time we have visited the area and we loved it. Beautiful scenery and friendly people too.

Lovely pastel with atmosphere, Dawn.

Thanks again for your encouragement, Cesare.

Super pastel painting Dawn.

Love that little touch of salmon / pink Dawn, it gives the scene a lot of depth.

Glad you enjoyed it Dawn, hope you will come back, there are lots of treasures to unearth. If I had know you could have called.

Thank you, Margaret and George. Thank you Fiona. We stayed in Whithorn in a beautiful little cottage on a farm. I think we may go back again next year.

How spooky, I live about 8 miles from Whithorn! Did you manage to catch any of the art fairs they have in Whithorn whilst you were here? The spring fling is great in this area, it's usually in May. Let me know if you come up again.

Hang on Studio Wall

Pastel on pastelmat. Painted after my first trip to Scotland for our summer holiday this year.

About the Artist
Dawn Halliwell

I started painting in Jan 2016 after the death of my youngest sister. I found it great therapy and still do! I love experimenting with different techniques and media. This year, I have set myself a challenge of working on my portrait skills, but I do love to paint animals and landscapes…
