A Castle Painted in Miniature

Eilean Donan Castle (5.25 x 1.75 inches)

This new miniature painting “Eilean Donan Castle” was inspired by a trip to Scotland where I fell in love with the landscape and ancient architecture. Many have fallen under the spell of this stone fortress, brooding on its island in the sea, and I was no different. While painting this miniature I felt like I was crawling over every wall, stone and rooftop, getting up close and personal with this formidable structure. This is one of the reasons I so enjoy painting in miniature, and it was a grand visit.
