Fantasy Castle Art – Eilean Donan Canvas Print by Mark Tisdale.
This Eilean Donan canvas print features my take on Fantasy Castle art – very much because when I saw Eilean Donan on a cold winter night, it felt like something out of a magical dream. If you’ve visited Scotland on holiday the chances are better than average that you’ve visited Eilean Donan Castle. I read somewhere that it was one of the most photographed castles in the world. I think it has a lot of picturesque qualities not least of which is sitting on the water connected by a long bridge.
Eilean Donan castle was once in ruins as it was partially destroyed during the Jacobite uprising in the 18th century. After almost 200 years it was restored, sort of, in the 1930’s. I say “sort of” because whether it’s true or not, I was told that Eilean Donan doesn’t per se look as it did in the past so much as it fits the part of a fantasy castle, i.e. how someone in the early 20th century thought a medieval castle should look. I’m going to have to say that I don’t care. Whether it’s accurate to the past or not, it looks lovely even on a cold winter night.
This fantasy castle art is depicted with Eilean Donan warmly lit against a deep blue starry night sky. It looks like a beacon in the night to me.
