 I really wanted to do a painting of the Golden Gate Palace, which I can't seem to find existing images for but I read that the street that leads up to the Palace is lined with the statues of the Ascended Masters.  This seems like a good vantage point but I don't know which masters are likely to be statues in Northpoint around 1620. I also don't really know what architectural style would fit Northpoint best but if that is a question for a different group  I understand. 

Loskalmi art is classical nudes.  An example is here: https://wellofdaliath.chaosium.com/home/catalogue/websites/moondesign-com/jeffs-old-blogs/loskalm-art-direction/ or the Guide p201.  I don't have any notes on the archtectural style (we have a piccie of Akem which is similar), which can be seen here (courtesy of Redbubble sotre)

As for the names of the Masters in Loskalm, we have:

What a great question. Perhaps @Jeff might have some pointers for you.

Welcome!

Regarding architectural style, this is Fronela and the Guide p.199 notes on climate:  "Most of Fronela has a temperate
continental climate, with warm summers and cool to bitterly cold winters. Because of the proximity to Valind’s Glacier, arctic gusts bringing snow and ice are possible in any season."

So, think northern with a need to deal with heavy snow loads (i.e. A-frame styles or other steeply-pitched roofs). 

There's lots of forest/timber, so log construction is likely for most folk but stone for palaces (may still have wooden roofs).

p.214 in the Guide has an image of Sog City in Fronela which might provide ideas for style.  (This work was by Per Sjögren - you can find his work here: http://perkan-arts.com/portfolio/Glorantha.html )
