Artist's description:

This is semi-abstract landscape. You may recognise a castle ruin in the drawing. Yes, as matter of fact, I wanted to depict a landscape with an old castle in my drawing. Actually it is a painting because you can paint with colored pencils too. The question is how you use the pencils. To protect the drawing (painting), I have varnished the artwork few times with Winsor and Newton spray for drawings.

I've used vivid and intense colours in the drawing. You'll find beautiful mix of azurite, lapis lazuli, cobalt and sky blue. The meadows in front of the castle are sunlit green; I've mixed avocado green with fern, mantis and shamrock greens. The castle itself is flamboyant in colours: yellows mixed with reds and atomic tangerines. To make it more delicious, I've added also some pumpkin and persimmon too :-)

The drawing is made on a Stonehenge vellum finish, 250 gsm, 9 x 12 inches, acid free sheet of paper.

The artwork is mounted and is ready to be framed. The size of the mounted painting is 12 x 16 inches (~30 x 40 cm) and should fit in the regular frames of the same size.

My certificate of authenticity will be included.

Materials used:

Professional quality colour pencils "Polychromos" by Faber-Castell, varnish for drawings by Winsor & Newton, Stonehenge paper
