Princess Castle

“When patterns are broken, new worlds emerge.”

Princess Castle

4″ x 6″ Watercolor Postcard

I painted this little castle from a photo of Disney World, posted by RubyRedDog at WetCanvas.  I really had fun with all the detail on this itty bitty card.  I did the outlines with a Prismacolor fine liner pen.

Doesn’t every princess need a pink castle?  😀

    I’ll bet the princess grew up, here, and then realised, as she grew older, that she needed to “go green” and moved into the “Little Pink House”. Very cool painting, Beth. I, too, like the amount of detail you achieved in a small format.

    Wow, some of my favorite memories is seeing my little girls eyes light up and a smile grow in excitement when entering the Magic Kingdom and seeing the castle. Of course they’re 16 and 20 now, but the look in their faces will remain with me forever. It is truly a magical place. Thanks for the flashback Beth!
