Maryland Lighthouse Challenge

The Maryland Lighthouse Challenge involves visiting nine lighthouses and one lightship over the course of a weekend. I haven’t the foggiest idea why, but I had it in my head that this was something I was going to do. And I did. And I drew a quick sketch of each lighthouse I visited, in person, usually standing. (I hate to draw while standing.) Chesapeake Bay lighthouses aren’t as impressive as the ones in the ocean, but they can be interesting to look at, particularly the screw-pile type. I filled one page each day of the challenge, and I’m really proud of how they turned out.

Sketchbook Peek: Fort Washington

Despite having grown up absolutely nowhere near water, I really like lighthouses. I stood in the wind as I drew, a man nearby flying a kite far above my head as the sun started to set. A lovely day, and I’m glad I took the time to draw part of it.

(I also love national parks because I can put the stamp in my sketchbook.)
