Drawing Challenge :: Lighthouse
The Wolf Rock Lighthouse, Lands End has always held some fascination for me. Its not only because of the fact that it is a lighthouse built on a rock out to sea but the fact that it is in Cornwall where my Grandmother was born (her maiden name was Corney cant get more Cornish than that!).
I found this old badge in an opshop in Melbourne. It looks roughly from the 50s or 60s and I like to think that someone went all the way to England for a holiday and brought it back as a souvenir or perhaps someone from Cornwall was emigrating and brought it with them to remind them of home. It is always exciting when you find something a random object that you immediately connect with for me this badge is one of them.
The badge featured in my sketchbook for the 2012 arthousecoop sketchbook project. Just perfect for this challenge.
This weeks drawing challenge is brought to us by the wonderful and talented Miss Renilde. If you are finished with this post I suggest that you pop over to her blog and take a look at the other lighthouse artworks.
Enjoy the weekend!
