Ang Bata sa Parola (lighthouse child)

Cape Bojeador lighthouse 2008

One of the most beautiful places in the Philippines. Ilocos Norte. This old lighthouse sits majestically on top of a hill overlooking South China Sea.

I think this was the first time i attempted an architectural study. Very frustrating. The finished painting was far from what i imagined it would be.

I couldn't get the right amount of light to hit the right side of the building. The shadow areas are muddy and dull. I need to practice more =)

This is my son, Kydlat =)
