Perhaps the most painted and photographed building in England, Bambugh Castle looks as if it was built for the artist. Northumberland has more castles than any other county, and while now romantic, they are there because of much turmoil in the Borders centuries ago. I’ve painted this scene dozens of times and they are all very different, mainly because of the weather. Our lovely county has many miles of clean, quiet, sandy beaches and, fortunately, it’s still a bit of a secret. Ah! I think I’ve just spilled the beans!.
The original is in oils and is about 20″ × 16″.
