I saw “Tall Eric” lighthouse whilst on holiday in Olland, Sweden, (a lovely rural island) facing out to sea. You were able to view Tall Eric from a bird reserve over salt marshes. He was built in 1845, to 32 meters, with a staircase inside leading up to the top for some amazing views. Whilst we were there, a huge storm was building with lightning and thunder, so we didn’t wait around for too long, but he was definitely worth a visit. At the other end of the island is Tall Jan, but he will have to wait till our next visit.
He stayed in my mind during the holiday, and I was determined to paint him when I got home. I tried to capture the light reflecting off the smooth walls of the light house as that interested me plus create clouds showing a brisk windy day.
