Lighthouse is always a fascinating building to see in every seaside. I love the shape, the red and the white colors. Matching with my Nautical Summer theme, I hand drew a Lighthouse by seaside which I hand painted it with watercolor.
A lighthouse is a tower designed to serve as a navigational aid for maritime pilots at sea or on inland waterways by emitting light. Basically, lighthouse has two types: a lighthouse on a land and on the offshore. A land lighthouse is simply built to aid navigation more over the land than water. Usually constructed in flatland where a bright lantern could be visible for many miles for traveler who’s disorientated and lost.
Lighthouses mostly mark dangerous coastlines, and were used widely. But due to high maintenance and increasing use of electronic navigational systems, slowly the number of operational lighthouses has declined. Many lighthouses are abandoned and deteriorated along with passing time. Afterwards, the lighthouse become more as preserved building.
I try to preserve it in a hand painted watercolor painting. The lighthouse on a sloping green by the calm sea. A serene look of tough lighthouse. I sketched it with pencil. I painted it with natural colors of brush pen. And for the watercolor, I used red, white, blue, ochre and green.
A framed painting could be a great piece to decorate your home. Especially a piece you made, a conversation starter with your guests. Well, hope my Lighthouse in watercolor hand painting inspires you in anything, to paint, to have a vacation, to write a poem, anything that makes you think of seaside, beach, breezy summer, all the coastal beauty.
