View of Hook head lighthouse, watercolour study.

Hook head lighthouse is a major attraction for visitors to the South East of Ireland, myself included on occasion. It is one of the oldest lighthouses in the world and is situated on Hook peninsula in Wexford. My little study is of the lighthouse and the landscape around it, approx 7x10 ins. I added a touch of gouache to the building to get the highlight..... The lighthouse is  a bit rigid, but it serves as a study, and I was happy enough with the sky and setting, so I left it at that.
