Pemaquid Point Light located in Bristol, Maine is one of my favorite lights partly because it has remained unchanged for so many years. I frequently go to this place for solitude and to collect my thoughts. One can come and watch waves pound the granite shore, see a Fresnel lens up close and think about what daily life was like back then. After many visits and sketches throughout the year I finally found the right composition on a breezy and icy ten-degree January morning. It was so cold that the windows of the cast iron lantern room had crystallized, forming a light haze. Despite the cold I took several photos that helped with my design. As I drew the illustration, I bypassed details such as wires/cables and smaller stones but enhanced the rubble stone texture of the tower with bright light and deeper shadows. By infusing a soothing olive green verdure, coffee-colored rocks, and a blue serene sky, I "warmed up" the scene to be like a perfect summer morning.
