Made in Europe II - Sandy Snowden

Sandy Snowden
England
Ramshackle Castles
Detail
Another in my series of Ramshackle Houses exploring community and neighbourhood. The challenge to develop the "Ramshackle look" to depict castles was a great way to take this series further. Each castle was given their own character; using additions and accessories like I do with the houses.
Living in England, I enjoy visiting castle ruins. I love to imagine the lives of those who lived in them.  Quite a different sort of neighbourhood, busy with all the people needed to run a castle.  In Europe, castles seem to be located on every hilltop...Or near enough. Sometimes the inhabitants were neighbourly. But more often, those in the nearest castle were definitely enemies!
