Work in Progress- Alki Point Light, Washington


I enjoy lighthouses and have several photos and prints in my collection. I have started a representation of Alki Point Light located in West Seattle, Washington. The light is on the west side facing Puget Sound. I am starting with a rough pencil sketch to set proportions and some of the angles of the buildings. There are a couple of areas I still need to work on to get them to look correct in perspective. I am still trying to decide whether I will use regular color pencil or watercolor pencils. Perhaps a combination. Perhaps one of each, or better yet a series in various mediums to see how each works since I am fairly new at this.
