Lindisfarne Castle

Lindisfarne Castle

great painting Malcolm.

I just love this painting.

How did you put the tissue paper on? Did you use P.V.A. Glue?

Love this, especially like the colours in the foreground.

Lovely, sunny take on this famous view. I was dissapointed that it was swathed in mist the one time I visited it.

It looks a lot nicer in these colours than the ones I experienced when I was there, although was still impressive. I love the colours and textures created with the tissue paper.

Thanks everyone for your comments- much appreciated. Janet- Yes, I used PVA diluted with 50% water but I have used acrylic medium or Mod Podge. Stephen - The castle is swathed with scaffolding at the moment -it is under repair.
