A couple months ago, I was very bored and was having a bit of artist's block. So to kick myself out of this rut, I started drawing castles on big rock cliffs in the middle of the ocean. This is a composition I drew all the time back in high school. I got quite imaginative with some of them. So, after getting back from the Netherlands, I wanted to do a castle city in a more Dutch aesthetic. This isn't too important of a piece for me, just a fun exercise. I was also playing around with doing an ink drawing and painting on top of it. So I did the ink drawing, sprayed it thoroughly with Krylon UV Archival spray, then mounted the paper to a board using acrylic matte medium. Luckily, it did not smudge at all. So, this is the final image, but I thought I'd show the black and white version also.
