The Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, located on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, is world-famous. It is not just the tallest brick lighthouse in the world… but years ago when it was relocated farther away from the coast to save it from beach erosion, it became the tallest brick structure of any kind in history to be moved!

Regular followers of my blog might feel a sense of deja vu, because in some ways this resembles the bell tower that I posted earlier this week. It was, in fact, while I was drawing that illustration that I got the idea to draw this one. They really aren’t all that similar though, other than being tall slender buildings, but I had a sense of deja vu as well.
As always, please let me know what you think of this one. I’m quite happy with how it turned out, especially with the mostly grey tones and the splash of red in the base of the lighthouse.
