Cape Hatteras Lighthouse

Since I’m here on Hatteras Island I didn’t want to let the idea go for painting the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse digitally. I have drawn and painted this famous lighthouse in the past and am sure I will again. You can view my other lighthouse works here.

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.

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.
