Watercolor: Inspiration Journal Lighthouse

Inspired by the wonderful work of one of the gals in my Wild Art Summer class, this sketch and watercolor was a really quick project and was inspiring for me to do.

 

While there are no Scripture verses that actually use the word “lighthouse,” there are many passages that describe God and Jesus as “light,” and His followers are to be a light in the darkness.

 

I have always loved lighthouses. They are beautiful and symbolic of safety and strong, true direction.

 

I sketched the lighthouse on a blank page in my altered Purpose Driven Life book, then lightly gesso-ed over it and then used a light charcoal pencil and watercolors.
