My graphite and coloured pencil drawing turned into yellow/gold with the aid of Gimp, is of the market town of Richmond which has grown up around the Norman Castle which still dominates the town today.
ORIGINAL COLOURED PENCIL DRAWING
Building of the castle started in 1071 by Alan Rufus of Brittany, on land given to him by William the Conqueror as reward for his part in the victory over King Harold of England.
Today Richmond, situated in the North of Yorkshire, is a beautiful and historic market town with Georgian architecture, a cobbled market place, ancient monuments and the fast flowing River Swale.
