Appleby Castle - Cumbria
First look at my Appleby Castle painting.
It was suggested I did the castle because the gallery which I display in are based in Appleby, Cumbria.
However 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 I suppose is classed as 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.
