A Scottish castle - part two

Well, I must admit, I really enjoyed the painting on this one. Took a bit longer than I first thought but I wanted to get the tones right. At around the start of the 1400's the UK (as it is now) was entering a little ice age so I wanted to get a more 'autumnal' feel to the groundwork and I think I've pulled it off.

Onto the pictures, not many more words to say apart from the fact I'll be starting on a smaller base with a stables on it next for this commission.

  7. Looking the DB's Jim, very smart looking bit of terrain. The different shades on the slate roof makes a huge difference. Very nice indeed.
