This is the lovely Schloss Linderhof in Bavaria, built in the late 1800's.  It was built for King Ludwig and was his favourite residence.  He also owned the famous Neuschwanstein Castle which you have probably seen as a symbol of Bavaria and was the inspiration for Disney's Cinderella.  I hauled out my sketchbook and had a go!!  This is the result.  Pen and wash in my Moleskin Sketchbook.

From the above sketch of the castle , you can see a golden statue in the middle of the pond.  I sketched the face and part of the body.  Covered in gold leaf, she was quite a lady!!!!


  1. Your style is very realist. I like your posts and the little background stories. Please keep posting and I will be following your blog. :)

  2. I certainly will keep blogging. It is fun and has encouraged me to get stuck into my Artist's Journal. Some of the content will be posted on my blog soon.
