Cape Hatteras: an early watercolor


Dug this out recently. It's one of the first watercolors I did- 10-15 years ago? It's of Cape Hatteras light on NC's Outer Banks. This was before the light was moved further inland due to erosion from storms. There are 268 steps from the bottom to the top of the lighthouse.... I know... I climbed them all! I don't think they allow anyone to climb the lighthouse any more. Glad I had that experience while I could.

This is a very nice painting! I had visited there before it was moved and remember that view well.

This is gorgeous! Lighthouses are so romantic (...except for the thought of walking up all those stairs)!

My last visit was before it was moved & I also climbed to the top. So glad I was a LOT younger then!

Beautiful job on one of our most beautiful landmarks!

Another great piece. Lighthouses just have that certain something that attracts everyone. To paint, photograph, and climb them, or just to look at them.
Beautiful

What a beautiful iconic piece of work! This is easily the most recognizable lighthouse in the country.... I love your interpretation of it.
