Castles in the sky by Acrylicdreams Castles in the sky by Acrylicdreams
I've painted this quite spontaneously (for an exhibition), without any reference or clear idea in the beginning.
Acrylic on cardboard, ca. 63 cm x 43 cm, about 20 hours of work

Edit:
You can now order prints of this image!


Edit2: I've uploaded the image with my homepage in it, sorry for that, but I have noticed that someone has uploaded one of my paintings on facebook and pretended that he has painted it. So, I'm afraid, I'll have to do this with all my paintings in future...

Is this like a reference to Laputa?

Not intended, although I love that movie!
But the influence for my paintings like this is much older - paintings by Roger Dean.

Great painting, especially being spontaneous. Imaginative but the golden light is somewhat reminiscent of Renaissance paintings.

As you know, I enjoy the 'stream of consciousness' kind of paintings, and this one came out beautifully. I'd love to visit that place.

Well, in fact the way of working was different to yours at your latest paintings, because the exhibition I painted this for had a topic ("Heiter bis wolkig" which means bright to cloudy, I think).
So, I wasn't that free although random also played a role in this.

This is amazing! I love the beautiful onion topped spires and towers on your castle, they add to the magical quality. And your evening/dawn light hitting the castle walls is just perfect!
