Nantucket Lighthouse

This is a small colored pencil piece I did of Brant Point Lighthouse in Nantucket. Its 7x9" on Rtistx board. I used solvent to dissolve & smooth the pencil for the water and the sky so the texture of the board didn't show through. I used Prismacolor Verithin pencils to add details, they are perfect for this kind of drawing and adding fine lines or details. Thank goodness Nantucket is still standing this morning after Hurricane Earl came through last night. To our relief, it ended up not being much of a big storm at all.

Beautiful painting, Kendra. I'm glad to hear that the storm didn't hit your area too hard.
