The Grand Castle by Isynia-Artessa The Grand Castle by Isynia-Artessa
Well, I was in a rut, and just needed to purge a bit and do a painting just for me. I am really pleased with this piece, and feel that it is closer to what I want my art to be like. I like the colors and the depth. Not quite there, but closer than my last pieces. This piece was inspired by a childhood memory of building "O'Keefe Castle" with my siblings at the beach. It was really just a huge mound of sand, but we thought it was magnificent.

I am officially in love with paper tape. It did a great job holding the paper smooth through the whole piece.

12 x 12 watercolor with colored pencil on hot press.

Very cute and I agree that the colours are nice and bright in this. Maybe you could have added more depth by making the rocks in the back ground somewhere between the brown rocks of the foreground and the blue of the distance.

Yes, I agree. If I was to re-do this piece, I would lighten those middle-ground rocks a bit.
