Windsor Castle

Windsor Castle

I've loved all your castle paintings so far Alan but I think this one is at the top of the list! It's sharp, crisp and strong against the skyline. A limited palette compared to your previous castles but still has great impact. Superb!

Great, strong image Alan, super detail on the castle. I probably prefer your"free/impressionistic" style in several of your recent postings, though appreciate the more complex work and drawing here to portray the strength and presence of the castle

Thank you Fiona and Pat, if you are referring to the Corfe Castle style Pat, I understand what you are saying, straight in with a brush, no prep work etc. I like that style also. However, I am always experimenting with different media and ideas so as not to become stale and bored with painting, that's where my enthusiasm and adrenalin kick in, constantly searching for different ideas.

Yes Alan I love the way the different styles convey different aspects yet they all marry. Excellent exciting journey

Truly beautiful Alan :)

Wonderful work Alan especially all the colours and textures in the castle walls, and it really stands out against the lighter sky.

Personally I prefer this more traditional approach but still with the lively sky. The castle has a very solid feel to it, as it should.

It's all been said - another winner Alan

Beautiful castle Alan love the sky and the detail.

Another stunner, Alan - love the textures and the way you anchored the solid form of the castle against such a dramatic backdrop.

Great attention to architectural detail whilst giving the painting a freedom with the skies, matched by the dark wall it is perfectly balanced.

Hang on Studio Wall

Mixed media on Fabriano 300lb HP, 11 x 15''. I always enjoy painting Windsor, and I have done on so many occasions, this is my latest version using a similar style and approach to my other latest mixed media work.
