Here is a late sketch of Venus, the evening star. Venus was shining high and bright on the evening of January 11th, 2009.
I finally found some time to finish the sketch. Most items of the scenery are quite easy to draw. The lighthouse is only a silhouette against the sky, but our mind fills in the rest of the details. The trees were difficult at first, until I managed to get them in the same perspective as the lighthouse.
I hope you like my impression.

Sketch made with Corel Photo Paint.

Clear skies,

I would have thought it was a photograph, it's very serene. It does leave me wondering why you didn't light up the lighthouse though.

Thanks for the kind words, Gill.

I did not light up the lighthouse, in favor of the bright light of Venus.
