The Lighthouse Hill, in El Golfo, Sonora, Mexico. This is a popular spring break destination for dune buggies, quads, rails and 4x4's. It's quiet now, but during Easter break it will be overrun with vehicles and revelers.


  1. Steve, do you paint a grey wash first or is the second image just a grey scale version of the final colored sketch? I like the clarity and consistency of your sketches!

  2. The gray wash comes before the color layer(s). I was in too big a hurry on this one and prefer the gray stage. I even forgot to finish the Mexican flag and put the graffiti on the lighthouse, I see.

  3. Always enjoy your work Steve, thanks for showing the process.
