the amazing Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany is situated on the edge of a mountain overlooking a wonderful lake. It couldn’t be any more picturesque. We’ve visited the castle several times and I’ve both sketched and painted it.
Rather than take a tour of the interior of the castle, I chose to climb the trail above it to get a better view of the castle and its relationship to the lake below. I did lots of sketches, took photos, and came up with this painting later in the studio.
