And now for something completely different; Lighthouses (‘Lighthees’?)  I have been experimenting with drawing  Lighthouses using pen and ink, to see what could result.  Two examples appear below:

DSCF2594 (3)

LIGHTHOUSE 1.

An older, multi-sided wooden lighthouse, of the sort sometimes  appearing at the ends of wharves and breakwaters.

Notes: Drawn with an 0.1 black-ink pigment liner on white cartridge paper. Image measures 19 mm x 14 mm.

LIGHTHOUSE 2.

A reinforced-concrete lighthouse of the sort frequently placed on hill-sides or headlands on harbour-approaches.  The stripes are for visibility-purposes, and are intended to make the lighthouse stand-out against the background.

Notes: Drawn with an 0.1 black-ink pigment liner on white cartridge paper. Image measures 19 mm x 14 mm.
