Castles in the air

Thats much better! I’ve just done a non vanilla painting, and one for Lucy too! Hope she likes it. I’m pleased with it anyway, and the basic idea I had for it followed on into the image -a fantasy castle in the air, amid swirling clouds, and two faces, one male, one female, half concealed with their expressions slightly indistinct. Lucy asked for a fairytale castle to illustrate her fairy tales some time ago, but I wasn’t exactly sure how I wanted to tackle it until today. Sometimes it takes time for the idea to work through. Its worked well though but I’ll leave it overnight and look at it fresh tomorrow, and in daylight, because watercolours always look better in natural light, and see then if it needs any more work doing on it to enhance the colours or add more tone anywhere.
