Chateau Chenonceau watercolor painting by 


Chateau Chenonceau, built on the river Cher, where the unique beauty of its architecture reflects in the water; it is the valley de Loire’s finest.
The Chateau was always controlled by women first was Catherine Briconnet, who’s husband Thomas Bohier bought the site on the proceeds of embezzling funds from Francoise 1.
The set of arches spanning the river was begun in 1572 by Diane de Poitiers mistress of Henry 11, and completed by Catherine de Medici his wife. She evicted the mistress on his death. Mary queen of Scots also spent some time here. She was raised at Chateau Amboise not too far away.

authors note: I spent many months in this valley sketching the Chateau’s in all their glory.
