Pigeon Point lighthouse

Going to Pigeon Point seemed like a peaceful and restorative place to relax and get the city and urban noise out of my head, so I went for 2 days. It was overcast/sunny weather with storm clouds and high seas. Very beautiful. The lighthouse is in desperate need of repair—they've had to dismantle and remove the Fresnel (prounounced fre NEL) lens and house it separately. They are 10k short of being able to fix it.
I wanted to work bigger than I usually do, use pen and ink, with only a little watercolor. This was fun, and I even threw a little paint at the paper just for fun.
