Soft pastel painting of the iconic low lighthouse on the beach of Burnham-on-Sea – a landmark of Somerset, which attracts many visitors, and me for one. I have painted the area around Burnham several times and in various seasons, and this time I wanted to enhance the romantic character of this quaint and beautiful little lighthouse by setting it, at low tide, against a dramatic night sky lit by a full moon.

The sky is the main feature of this artwork; the movement of the clouds and the strong colours emanating from the moon give the sky a wild aspect which strongly contrasts with the serene beach and the firmly anchored building.
