NIGHT AT THE BEACH
©1996 SKY HIGH PRODUCTIONS
This is the entrance to the Watch Hill beach in Watch Hill,
Rhode Island. A one street, boat harbor and beach suburb to Westerly, Rhode
Island. The community consists of summer home mansions of the rich and powerful.
A part-time eastern Bel Air. The beach, which is a finger that blocks the
harbor, also contains the most incredible spelunking adventures. WWI bunker
ruins at the end of the beach. The rocky endpoint one mile from the picture's
entrance overlooks a private island that houses a monstrous mansion. Martha's
Vineyard can be seen in the distance. The pillar in the picture also is
located at the end of the beach but was inserted for effect.
The piece started as a daytime
color photo. It was scanned and given a watercolor effect. The
sky was dropped out and I added the glowing moon and gradation.
I took the pillar from another piece an added the boat.
