This lighthouse is situated in a park commemorating a significant victory over the British during the Revolutionary War. Sometime later, the lighthouse was constructed to guide ships up the Hudson River. The lighthouse itself is not great in height. To compensate for that, I drew the lighthouse from the bottom of the bluff on which it is located. This presents the lighthouse in a more dramatic way, making it appear taller and more imposing. Sometimes the manner in which we present something is as important as the thing itself. Truth can be understood from more than one point of view. Like the height of this lighthouse, much depends on one's perspective.
