I don’t need much of an excuse to paint Dunstanburgh Castle. Northumberland’s Castles are well photographed and painted by amateurs and professionals alike.
I’ve often been commissioned to do paintings of castles and I have to say, it’s always a delight.
One such project came in 2003 when I was commissioned to do around a dozen large watercolours of North East castles for a major North East Company to hang in their boardrooms.
Dunstanburgh Castle was one of the chosen castles. I decided to paint it on a summer evening just as the sun was beginning to dip below the horizon with the waves pounding down on the rocks.
