Ocracoke Lighthouse #2. Outer Banks . North Carolina . Watercolor . 9" x 12"
... from an early sketch along the Outer Banks... I visited the Ocracoke Light in the summer of 2007... and also Bodie, Currituck & Hatteras in NC... Morris Island in SC and Tybee Island in GA. Built in 1823; Ocracoke Light is the oldest active light station in North Carolina... of course, in it's more recent history, it's been renovated and well maintained. The light entered the National Register of Historic Places in 1977. This is my 2nd watercolor painting of this lighthouse.
