My ArtVenture: Mixed medium painting “King Matthias fountain in Budapest”

in steempress •  last month

Hello dear Steemians,



As you may be noticed one of favorite subjects to paint is architecture. Luckily there are so many beautiful buildings all over the World.

Today I wanted to demonstrate one of the amazing and complex Sculpture in Noe-baroque style Matthias Fountain in Budapest, that was erected by Hungarian sculptors Alajos Stróbl and Alajos Hauszmann. It represents hunting scene of Matthias Corvinus, the King of Hungary, the figures are made of bronze.

I love difficult works and it is a great satisfaction to see the result. In this work I decided to combine Watercolor and Pastel for fine details.

I hope you like it.
