Windsor Castle

Hello  Everyone

Windsor Castle is a second home to me because I have family who live in Eton Wick. In the summer of 1977 we spent the Queen’s Jubilee sitting on the grass outside Windsor Castle watching the procession go by.  In my teens me and my cousin used to go clubbing in the town centre at night and walk round it during the day.  I painted the castle for nostalgic reasons.

I drew out the Castle and buildings in a light pencil, i paintined in the sky using a mix of cobalt blue and titanium white and then i painted in the castle using a mix of yellow ochre and white.  I mixed my own shades of green for the trees and grass, using blues, browns and yellow.  I am really pleased with the finished painting and the white mount and frame set it off nicely giving it a fresh appearance.

Thank you for reading, watch out forvthe next flog on Tuesday at 10.00am.
