Neuschwanstein Castle

Nicholas Cornell's avatar Nicholas Cornell

This is a black and white pencil reproduction of the world famous Neuschwanstein Castle in Bavaria, Germany. This painstaking reproduction and enlargement is a blend of landscape drawing and architectural rendering. The architectural elements, shading and intricacy of the castle's details create a three dimensional effect in a two dimensional space. The mountains and the receding detail in the back ground only add to the three dimensional effect and realistic perspective. This art work is a good example of realism mixed in with minor whimsical details.
