Boniguil Castle - The Lot France
I have started building a portfolio for France and a future UK exhibition. Bonaguil Castle (a beautiful castle in a magical setting) was a definite contender. I managed to capture it in the sunlight (a rare chance as the Spring has been so grey and wet) and the vegetation was just beginning to fill out. This particular view was superb and I couldn't wait to paint it. I started with a very loose underpainting of washes and then built up selected areas of detail. I hope you enjoy it.
