First look at my Appleby Castle painting.
A friend suggested I painted the castle because the gallery which I display at is in Appleby, Cumbria
If you have ever been to the castle you can not actually see the castle from the drive way (as I am looking at it in the painting) because of the stunning Cooper Birch trees and others that line either side of the driveway. This painting an artistic impression.
Later you will see Black Swans and Flamingo's start to appear. The tour guide informed me of these animals whilst I was wandering around with him. Many decades ago the castle used to have many types of animals there some of which were rare breeds. I couldn't really find anything on the internet stating his Flamingo and Black Swan claim, but, his knowledge was vast in the history of the castle and general History, I decided to include them.
