Green Point may seem an odd name for this painting, given that there is so little green in it. But Green Point Lighthouse is the official name of this beacon that was constructed and became operational in 1883. It remains active, guiding vessels into the southern entrance of Bay Roberts Harbour on the Avalon Peninsula. At 6.3 m in height, it’s one of the more diminutive lighthouses that I’ve painted.
Spring was slow in coming when I took this photo; instead, the tower is surrounded by crimson, brown, beige, and white scrub and undergrowth. There’s just a hint of green in the grass around the tower’s base.
Green Point Lighthouse is located on the Port de Grave Peninsula, and near Hibbs Cove, the subject of the painting that I did just before this one.
