The Grey Havens concept.

A acrylic/oil sketch/idea for the Grey Havens that never really got going. 

Where possible I always try and draw inspiration from real life and add a fantasy twist, The Grey Havens is a perfect example of this; Venice, Capri and Cadiz (capital city of where I now live)  all acted as inspiration for a recent painting.

The Phoenicians, Romans, Moors and Spanish have all influenced the architecture of Cadiz at various points  through history and makes for a very unique style.
