I love lighthouses as I have a high appreciation of architectural features, especially the uniqueness in these types of structures. For this post, I am sharing three different lighthouses that I created using different techniques.
I’ll start with the Cape Meares Lighthouse along the Oregon coastline. For this print I used a basic technique which focuses on traditional watercolor, but uses a precise drawing technique that creates sharp pockets of color in an almost abstract manner.
Then moving up the coastline to the state of Washington, I have the North Head Lighthouse. For this print, I used a more abstract approach with stronger lines drawn to create the shapes with strong pockets of color.
And then for the third lighthouse we move further north into the Seattle area to the West Point Lighthouse. This lighthouse sits on a piece of land that juts out into the Puget Sound and marks the northern end of Elliot Bay which lines the downtown waterfront of Seattle. For this art print, I created it using a color pencil sketching technique.
Thoughts? As I have said before, everyone reacts to visual art techniques and looks differently, so I am not in the least offended by opinions.
