Big Red

This is a quick line and wash sketch of "Big Red" the lighthouse in Holland Michigan. I am experimenting with line and wash techniques. Trying different techniques and applying the elements and principles of design. The one thing that I would improve is that neither the line of the wash is dominant. The center of interest is to close to the center. What is nice is I can try again with my own critique in mind. This sketch took 1 hour to complete start to finish.

Jeff, I love the lighthouse in Holland, maybe even more so because I'm from southwest Michigan, and my sister is living in Holland. Nicely done!
