Sandy Neck Lighthouse, Barnstable Harbor Point
25 in. x 64 in. Digital Painting

The Sandy Neck Lighthouse sits on the eastern tip of Sandy Neck -- a half-mile wide, six-mile long, dune covered peninsula, on the north side of Cape Cod. It marks the entrance to Barnstable Harbor as well as the approach to the small harbor at Yarmouthport.

The 48-foot brick tower that currently stands, was built in 1857 to replace the original structure. It's just slightly north of the first light's location. The iron rings and six staves that surround the central part of the lighthouse, quite different from other lighthouses, were added in 1887 to try to hold cracks in the tower together.

The Sandy Neck Lighthouse can be seen from Millway Beach in Barnstable, but you'll get the best view by boat. We were on a whale watch from Barnstable Harbor when I shot the image of the lighthouse I based this digital painting on.

This painting was created entirely using a tablet an art pen and Corel Painter. I used acrylic, oil pastels and airbrush digital media for this piece.
