Ocracoke Lighthouse

Ocracoke Lighthouse

Anyone that is familiar with my charcoal drawing knows I have always enjoyed drawing lighthouses, but thought it was time to paint one. This watercolor painting is of the Ocracoke Lighthouse on Ocracoke Island, North Carolina. This is a small island off  the Hatteras Island that can be reached by taking a ferry. I have, in the past drew 2 Ocracoke Lighthouses that can be viewed here, and here.

Watercolors on 140 lb. watercolor paper.

  1. That’s a very appropriate “spring” lighthouse. The purple flowers beneath it give it a nice balance.

    • Thank you, Binky, it was a last minute decision to add the purple flowers; felt it needed a bit more color. Thank you for your comment, Binky!

  2. I remember a striped lighthouse that you drew!
    This is lovely, Debbie, set off by the textureof the flowers and greenery in front of it. I especially like that angled strip of white that leads my eye to the base of the lighthouse. Nice touch!

    • Oh yes, The Cape Hatteras Lighthouse it the one you are speaking of; I have done several of those which can be found in Lighthouses listed under Categories. I have to thank you for bringing that up to since it gave me a chance to have a peak at them. In doing so I had learned that I never posted one of them back in June of 2009 so I got right on it and back posted it to then.
      I’m glad you like this painting Leslie, it was my first try at painting one of them and was very eager to get started on it. I was pleased with is as well. Thank you for you lovely comment!

    • Oh I love to fish; though I haven’t done quit as much of it as my husband on the surf though. I have a tendency to get involved in a good book. But he loves the fact that I like to fish too!

  4. I also remember the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, but this is different. The composition has the special triangle arrangement. Beautiful work, simple, clean, I love it.

    • This one here you had looked at is the Ocracoke Lighthouse on Ocracoke Island. I take the ferry over to that Island from Hatteras Island.
      On Hatteras Island they have their own Lighthouse located in the village of Buxton on Hatteras Island. Thank you for commenting, Keith!

  5. Deb this is just breath takingly beautiful….A light house is always shown or seen all standing alone a gloomy figure on the shore showing path to lone sailors…
    but this one looks like a light house in fairy land…surrounded by flowers
    guiding the angels and fairies
    Deb this is so inspiring, ….absolutely marvelous
    Hugs n love 🙂
