Fantasy Castle Art - Eilean Donan Canvas Print
This Eilean Donan canvas print features my take on Fantasy Castle art - very much because when I saw Eilean Donan on a cold winter night, it felt like something out of a magical dream. If you've visited Scotland on holiday the chances are better than average that you've visited Eilean Donan Castle. I read somewhere that it was one of the most photographed castles in the world. I think it has a lot of picturesque qualities not least of which is sitting on the water connected by a long bridge.
Eilean Donan castle was once in ruins as it was partially destroyed during the Jacobite uprising in the 18th century. After almost 200 years it was restored, sort of, in the 1930's. I say "sort of" because whether it's true or not, I was told that Eilean Donan doesn't per se look as it did in the past so much as it fits the part of a fantasy castle, i.e. how someone in the early 20th century thought a medieval castle should look. I'm going to have to say that I don't care. Whether it's accurate to the past or not, it looks lovely even on a cold winter night.
This fantasy castle art is depicted with Eilean Donan warmly lit against a deep blue starry night sky. It looks like a beacon in the night to me.

Canvas Prints - Product Information
Stretched canvas prints are a great choice for decorating your home or office. Canvas art is a classic choice that is at home in traditional and modern decor alike.
After the purchase of your canvas print, it is made to your order. The artwork is printed on an acid-free poly/cotton blend canvas. The use of archival inks and substrate means that your canvas art print should last a lifetime without fading or loss of color.
When ordering your print, you have a choice between glossy and matte finishes. While I ordinarily love matte finishes on prints, I do like the sheen that comes on glossy canvas prints. Ultimately I would suggest letting the amount of light in your space guide your choice. In a brightly lit environment, I would lean towards a matte finish to reduce the chance of glare.
There are three wrap styles to choose from for canvas prints. The mirrored wrap choice mirrors and extends the image to the sides of the canvas wrap (without losing any of the original artwork on the front). The majority of the time I would suggest this is the best choice. The other two options are a solid black wrap or white wrap. You can see a preview of each option when selecting wrap color.
After printing, the canvas is stretched over and secured to a wooden frame of 1.5" by 1.5" stretcher bars. The entire production process takes from 10 to 15 business days. Your artwork will arrive in sturdy packaging. The hanging wire will be attached and all hardware necessary to hang your canvas print will be included. Canvas prints are a great ready-to-hang option.
