Charlene in Austria
My postcard from Charlene Brown has arrived and what a surprise, it is from Austria! Charlene is such a peripatetic artist. I'm thinking there could be a book in 'Where's Charlene Now?' Of course she is more than capable of writing, illustrating and publishing such a book herself. I would appreciate a free copy for the brilliant idea.
Charlene said, 'this is Dürnstein, Austria and the 'Burgruine' above the town is said to be the very castle where Richard the Lion Heart was held prisoner'. It goes without saying that Super Sketcherciser, Charlene climbed up there and painted the view from the prison. She confesses that she made the Danube a little bluer and the trees a little purpler than they really are, but I'm not complaining because this is a beautiful watercolour with gemlike colours shining through.
Many thanks, Charlene I'm thrilled with my postcard from Austria.
