Update and second very tall castle

Ok ok -I left it more than a week -grovelling apologies. This is the second of two ink and watercolours I did originally as a commission. The client never collected (matrimonial differences I am told) so I still have them and up until recently lurking unseen in a portfolio.That might also be due to my putting them somewhere safe and we all have those 'safe places' that elude us for ages!

Both this and last weeks image where born out of a discussion at an exhibition 4 years ago. The client spent ages looking at a pencil sketch then after his third visit asked about colour versions,  hence the no longer wanted commissioned paintings. Usual method for my castles: rough sketch on back of mounting board as I was going to do some wet work -watercolour and some ink. They took about a day each and where fun to do . . . note to self: do some more but on an A-size paper.

I hope you like them.
