"Kings of the Castle". Sparta Rotterdam, Het Kasteel Stadium.
Updated: Jun 29, 2021
I don't normally do requests but I had a social media message from a kind Dutchman that made me aware of Het Kasteel (The Castle) in Rotterdam. Im always interested in unique looking stadia with agreeable architecture so I decided to paint it.
Sparta Rotterdam play in Eredivisie and are the oldest professional football club/team in the Netherlands. I think its a great looking facade/main entrance. I like the way it has turned out. I only wish I had maybe gone a little darker for the sky. The stadium does have a tramway situated in front of it. Ive ignored all that as I didn't want steel tram electrification pylons and wires spoiling the composition.
I'm not sure what I will be painting next. The U.K is entering a second lockdown so Im guessing I shall have more time for dispatching Christmas orders and painting new material. Stay safe!
