Bamburgh Castle, watercolour and pen

Bamburgh Castle, watercolour. pen and coloured pencil in S&B Delta sketchbook

Bamburgh castle from the other side, this time well lit, not the dramatic silhouette of the previous write up.  Those sides are steep, it would be an incredibly difficult place for an attacking army to take.  It really is massive.  Do click on the link there and look at the aerial view, it's amazing.

There were fascinating areas of rosy coloured stone amongst the greyer ones.  Not easy to keep track of all those windows and turrets and ins and outs :>)  It was sunny and beautiful but the wind was cold so this was done from the warmth of the car.

Harry Potter was filmed here - this is Hogwarts.

more to follow .....
