Pencil sketch of the recently-moved lighthouse at Cape Jourimain Nature Centre, Cape Jourimain, New Brunswick. It really needs a coat of paint — many shingles have gone black. From a photo I took in September, 2016. On 9 ¼ × 6 ¼″ Stillman & Birn Alpha (150 gsm) white paper.

Work-in-progress: pencil sketch of the newly-moved lighthouse at Cape Jourimain Nature Centre

  • Light 2H pencil under-drawing of the newly-moved lighthouse at Cape Jourimain, N.B.
  • 9 ¼ × 6 ¼″ Stillman & Birn Alpha (white/150 gsm) sketchbook.
  • From a photo I took in September, 2016.

Not sure if I want to do this as a pen-and-ink sketch or do light watercolour washes. We’ll see how I’m feeling about it once I’ve finished with the pencil.
