I haven’t done any drawing for a while, but I felt inspired to do this stylised drawing of Tantallon Castle, a lovely castle I visited in Scotland a couple of months ago.

I used coloured pencils and based the picture on a photo I took of the castle. When I say based, I MEAN based :) I take my own photos to avoid copyright arguments and I sketch the photo loosely then remove the photo from my sight and let my imagination take over – it’s fun :)

Here is the photo I used.

I am a retired man who enjoys expressing himself in pencils and paints. I have had two solo exhibitions in my home town and I love Redbubble. I get as much pleasure from viewing the works of other artists as from creating my own.

    Great to see you wielding the drawing tools again Dave! This is great, and I hope it is spurring you on to do more in 2011.

  • Thanks Lynda. I decided to add the photo to show how I use it only as a jumping off point into my fantasy world :)

    Good to see you back at the drawing board. Love the dreamy
    sky! Welcome back. (I should talk. Haven’t done anything new
    in a while.)

  • I am delighted that you like the sky, as skies are one of my weak spots.
