This pencil drawing of Fortress Hohensalzburg on an A4 size sheet of paper is one of my early works which I rediscovered when clearing out the attic.
The simplified trees and bushes guide the eye to the essential contents of the drawing, the castle and the mountains of Austria in the background.
Maybe I will add some watercolour sometime to see what effect this will have.
The building represents on of the largest castles in Europe. It certainly is a major tourist attraction in the city of Salzburg. During the course of the years I have visited the castle many times. I was always impressed by the view and the beautiful Salzburg Countryside.
I usually stay at lake Fuschlsee which is only a half hour´s drive away from Salzburg. However, you can also find attractive and reasonably priced hotels in Salzburg itself.
Please contact me via my contact page to enquire about signed limited edition prints which are available in different sizes.
You will find more pictures here and an enlarged view after clicking on the painting.
