Castle walls

10-08 Castle walls

Built upon a rocky mound in the days when knights in armour roamed these lands, this castle, looking over the town and river of Clun on the Welsh border, has been a ruin for the best part of five hundred years.

The view between these walls faces away from the town but I love the patchwork of fields which have generated a number of ideas for paintings still to be painted.

A peek into a different world, even if it is only eighty miles or so away from one’s natural habitat, can be food for the soul and provide the stimulus one needs.
