Original Creation

Old castle in winter

Tom0779 28 Nov 2021

I didn’t paint a huge number of pictures recently. I tried to concentrate on my own scenes and more complex pictures. Here I painted after a photo made from an old castle on the Austrian Country side (near the place I am living). This took me almost two weeks in several sessions.
I hope it fits the criteria of the event.
The size is 30 x 40 cm. Paper used is from W & N.

Wow, Tom this is fantastic, it looks so real with all those snowy roof tops all huddled together. I love the all the trees that live closely between them and the lighting, that soft warm white glow in the sky that sweeps across the scene makes this very much a christmas scene. Brilliant!

Blimey, that is stunning. All your hard work and multiple sessions definitely paid off. It looks like a photograph. The colour of the buildings gives me a warm, snuggly feeling surrounded by all that cold. Fabulous work.

Wow so awesome! Lots of work in this one! Just gorgeous!

I can't tell you guys exactly how much this captures the feeling of older small Austrian towns.
From the architecture to the exact color of the buildings, simply superb!

This is really a great painting Tom. So precise and detailed in a painting of that size. Well done.

Such beautiful detail, just incredible.

Tom, this is such a beautiful piece! This is the absolute top in a challenge you took with buildings and an absolute beauty!

This is fantastic!! The snow covered trees are amazing.
