Description en Details

This painting is built up in the atmosphere of a warm summer evening.
The title 'King's Castle refers to the lion as' King of the animals' but also to the kingfisher.
The castle that I used as a background is the Castle 'Hof ter Saksen' where I often hung around as a little boy.

Detail Kingfisher

Detail with the always eye-catching kingfisher in a kind of lampion vessel.
By adding such a movement in the composition you get a strong contrast between the architectonic of the castle and the flying objects.
