Castle in the Snow – Artbytoh

Why did you pick this picture?

I picked this picture as it is one of my favourite watercolour pieces I have done. I like the colours in the painting as they are light.

Where did the idea for this art come from? 

I painted this as I had to do a poster of Germany in Winter for a project. Germany is famous for its castles, and I got inspired when I saw the reference online.

What does this art mean to you?

I like this painting a lot as I live in a country without four season, so painting the castle in winter brought me a lot of joy as I felt like I was there, in Germany. It is also one of my best works (which I painted when I was 13), and I had to submit it for school, which I never got back. As I’m not an expert at watercolour, the painting was a rather tough challenge. I spent many hours painting it and I almost gave up, but I told myself to press on. This is why this painting means a lot to me.

What can you tell us about yourself?

I only began to draw seriously at the end of 2014, when I was 12. I am mostly self-taught, the times when I’m taught it in school during workshops. I like to switch between many mediums, as I am still trying to find my own style of art and something that represents me.

What more can you tell us about your art?

I like to do different kinds of drawings. One of my favourite is realism, even though I definitely need more practice. I also enjoy drawing cute things like Disney characters and small doodles. Hopefully, I will be able to find myself as I continue to learn more and try more new things.

<Castle in the Snow> hello all! here's a watercolor painting of a castle in germany in winter! i know, everyone is doing fall and halloween drawings and here i am, with a winter on. this is definitely the most difficult piece that i have ever done in my entire life so far, and i spent a lot of effort on this. initially, i could not get the snow effect on the trees and had to use my white gel pen, but i'm really satisfied with how this turned out! i'm so sorry for not posting in a long time but my exams only ended on the 5th october and i have been drawing since then! i have another piece that is going to be completed soon, so i'll probably post on friday or saturday, or maybe even earlier. hope you like this painting because i really love it 💓 feel free to repost but do give credit! thank you all 🌟 #watercolor #germany #winter #scenery #snow #castle #trees #art #art_spotlight #artshelp #arts_help #artyfeatures #young_artists_help #lookkristina #worldofartists #art_empire #snaptweet #art_assistance
