My hometown isn’t the most picturesque of places, but it does have a lighthouse that was built in the 18th century. The river was made deeper and narrower over the years and so the lighthouse is now inland. I have painted and drawn it before (as has L.S. Lowry) but decided to liven it up a little in this whimsically bent coloured pencil depiction of it.

Here is a more conventional drawing I did of the same lighthouse:

I am a retired man who enjoys expressing himself in pencils and paints. I have had two solo exhibitions in my home town and I love Redbubble. I get as much pleasure from viewing the works of other artists as from creating my own.

    After those many drawing of building you did a while ago with so many straight lines I guess you’re having an unconstrained fling and greatly enjoying it. Hardly a straight line in sight and lots of colour. It feels like being wrapped in blue bubble wrap – make it red bubble next time huh?
