This is a drawing I did many years ago now while inspired on a lone trip I did through Europe. I went with the intention of visiting Giger's museum and was most amazed by the Chateau De Gruyeres in the foothills of the Alps, this castle is quite a mystery and is in the midst of the fabled land of fairies. This is a place anyone with an interest in the mysteries must pay a visit. The walls of the Chateau De Gruyeres have two of the most amazing bronze sculptures by none other than Patrick Woodroffe, depicting love and pain. The old town itself is encapsulated by old castle walls and has the typical cobble stone street and fountains, so common in old european villages and towns. I was lucky enough the be there in winter which was an added bonus with the ground covered in white, this place truly is magick...
