Japanese Castle WIP


Has been a few weeks since I have been able to work on the Castle.
Mostly did fine detail color work.


Can see it a little better with the close up below.

Japanese Castle WIP


Working on the right half of the Castle now.  Stone work and adding color.
The detail in this piece, is making the work go slow but I am enjoying it.

Still deciding on what color to make the roof tiles.  Normally I am a lot more decisive on these kind of decisions.  But it is really hard to make out their color with Darling Husband's photographs.

This is Kumamoto Castle in Kyushu, Japan.

The photos my Husband took, were in winter and there was a big tree right in front of the main part of the castle.
I decided not to paint the tree, as it distracted from the beautiful castle.
