Dunnattar Castle, Stonehaven, Aberdeenshire by Dennis Melling

Dunnattar Castle, Stonehaven, Aberdeenshire by 

A digital impressionist painting, using Whistler’s Rainbow, Gimp & FastStone, of a Gutenburg out of copyright, black & white image of Dunnottar Castle.

Striking combinations of nature and art which, during a long series of ages, rendered the fortress of Dunnottar impregnable. But those rocky foundations from which it once rose in all the strength and grandeur of feudal architecture are fast yielding to the encroachments of the sea; its crested summits, once brilliant with arms and bristling with cannon, seem ready to drop from their precipice. Unroofed, unlatticed, untenanted, with not an ember left on its once capacious hearth, desolation and ruin are vividly pictured in its dreary solitude.

I have opened a shop with CafePress to sell some of my designs on clothing, iPhone & laptop cases, jewellery and lots more:

    It has a feel of a colorless Yes cover done by Roger Dean – very cool Dennis…
