"Point Wilson Lighthouse" Original Watercolor Painting
20x30" Original Watercolor "Point Wilson Lighthouse"
This painting was inspired while taking a walk during low tide around the front of the point where the Point Wilson Lighthouse stands. The perspective, the green seaweed covered rocks, the light coming down on the lighthouse was an awe-inspiring moment. I knew as I snapped the photo that it would be the one that I would paint. This low, broad sand-spit extends over a half-mile into the water and marks the entrance to Admiralty Inlet from the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Here, the main shipping channel narrows and makes a sharp turn to the south into Puget Sound. Nearby shoals, heavy riptides, and persistent fogs influenced the placing of a lighthouse on Point Wilson in 1879. In 1913, the present Point Wilson Lighthouse was built by the United States Lighthouse Service.
