The hugely popular recent ITV series ‘Downton Abbey’ was filmed at Highclere Castle in Hampshire. The series attracted 11 million viewers and I’m sure Highclere Castle will see a significant rise in visitor numbers in the future. I have never been – I was inspired from impressions gained from the series – but it has been added to my ever-expanding ‘to visit’ list.
The scene is festive, but storm clouds and shadows are forming; It’s 1913 and the most devastating war the world had yet to experience looms on the horizon…
Watercolour, ink, wax resist and a hint of oil pastel.
