Works of Art ATC Challenge - Starry Night

Across at Flickr the Works of Art ATC challenge this week is inspired by Van Gogh's Starry Night.

This is my interpretation.

I tried my hand at a bit of digital daubing which I then swirled with the smudge tool, altered and added the castle from my own photos, and finished with a grain filter.

Van Gogh made it look so easy ..... but it wasn't!

Thanks for looking.
