Charcoal Drawing

As a charcoal artist I was inspired by the Ocracoke Lighthouse to draw it’s window.

Using the “The Cotton Cloth Technique,”,  I worked it up the window in layers.

The highlights around the window were lifted out with a Knead Eraser.

Trees outside the  window was applied last using graphite’s, as well as for the  glass reflection.

  4. I agree, there is another story to be told from a lighthouse window; there’s got to be many old stories to tell, I think. Not to mention of course all the worldwide tourist that show up at Ocracoke Island Lighthouse that can be seen from this window.
    Thank you, Keith.
