Deconstructing the castle. . .

I found this kit in hobby craft, the idea is to fix all the numbered pieces of wood together to construct the London Bridge and I decided that the tops of the towers looked very much like turrets off a castle, so I decided to deconstruct this London Bridge kit and make it into my own castle and because I wanted it to look more spooky I painted it black. This helped to make the silhouette stand out more against the colourful backgrounds and I was referencing this from Jan Pienkowski's work, as he has created a lot of silhouettes of castles in his work and I wanted to capture that magical quality that he has in his pieces in my own work.
