Here is a doodle-like artwork I've just done this evening of Anvil Point Lighthouse!

I went to there today, for a bracing walk along the coast. Built in 1881, it has done sterling service guiding ships around some particularly treacherous seas. After 110 years, it was automated in 1991, and it still looks great in pristine white. 

It is set on top of the cliffs just around the corner from Swanage in Dorset. 
It also sits near the brilliantly named Tilly Whim Caves, and where an extraordinary Victorian gentleman called George Burt set about creating a breathtaking walkway around the cliff edge and building the fantastic folly of Durlston Castle.
