Challenge 71 - Boldt Castle Entrance Tower on Heart Island in the Saint Lawrence River

About the photo reference

At the boundary between Canada and US, along the St Lawrence river there are more than 1000 islands. Some are as small as a few rocks together and some big enough to have an entire castle built on it.

On the US side, there is an island called Hart Island, where the Boldt castle was built by a husband for his wife who unfortunately did not live long enough to see it. Nowadays it is a tourist attraction,  in the process of being restored and finished.

The photo above shows one of the entrance towers at the edge of the island. I love the architecture and old aged stone bricks against blue sky and blue running water. I hope you would enjoy painting and drawing it.

Please send your drawings and paintings before Dec 10, 2017. The next challenge will be posted on Dec 11.

Have a great day, and happy painting and drawing.
