Nice Painting! How did you get such opacity with watercolor? Did you use some Gouche?

A Beacon To Sailors


Nan Wright


Painting - Watercolor


A watercolor of Split Rock Light House located in northern Minnesota on the shores of Lake Superior sends out its beacon of light to sailors on the water. No longer a working light house, it is now a famous landmark for tourists. The original measures 8.5 x 11" and sells for $250. Contact me for further information if you are interested in purchasing the original watercolor.

I use the 'limited palette' of the three primary colors to produce all the shades and hues you see in my paintings. Red, yellow and blue transparent watercolor in both warm and cool shades can be mixed to obtain any color in the spectrum. I find I have more control over the final results. My artwork covers a wide range of subjects from whimsically humorous to serious and refined. However, my passion is doing portraiture of animals and people. I love to capture the emotion of the moment.

I hope you enjoy my work and I welcome any comments. Thanks for stopping by and visiting my gallery of high quality giclee prints and greeting cards. You may also choose to have the prints framed or printed on ready to hang framed canvas. Please feel free to contact me via FAA email with any questions. FAA is launching into providing electronic accessories that are original and one of a kind. The iphone case is the first to be offered. Watch for future offering about every couple of months. I have selected certain images of my artwork that would work best for the iphone case. The cases are sold on the sister site of FAA called Pixels at

I accept private commissions, working from photographs. My medium is watercolor. However, I also work with graphite. Prices for originals are set by the square inch. Please contact me to obtain further information if you have interest in commissioning a piece of artwork.

My FaceBookPage at: is where you can follow the progress of my current painting from beginning sketch to finished watercolor. I welcome comments both here and on my FaceBook Page.
