I got the idea for this painting when exploring central Stockholm when he showed me this castle where he did his military service. As we live quite close, several times, I jogged along the river bank which over looks this imposing building and was able to see it in different lights. I decided to paint the castle with bright morning light and still waters reflecting the clouds and buildings.
I am still considering whether to attempt a larger scale of this painting, possibly in 3 sections which could be fun to create. I am also looking at the other castles in the Stockholm area which could make an interesting collection. Feedback appreciated.
