VSW: Duluth Lighthouses, 2


Of the three lighthouses I sketched around Lake Superior I think
the Duluth North Pier Lighthouse is my favorite, mostly because of the challenges.
Lots of people, lots of color and texture, and a lovely reflection in a puddle on the walkway.

First, I loved my sketch… I love pen and ink sketches,
and I think I did a good job of this one.

I used a lot of Primatek watercolors from Daniel Smith to get the texture;
I regret not planning the sketch better
because the gate ended up slammed against the edge.

Special thanks to Dan Antion for his wonderful images!
