From the artist's easel

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 20 June 2012 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

A view of Souter Lighthouse on the coast in South Shields.
I made this painterly watercolour theme using the Lucis Arts plug in and finished it with a texture overlay.

PENTAX K100D 1/350 second F/11.0 ISO 200 67 mm (35mm equiv.)
