Beautiful Britain - Harlech Castle, Wales by

This is a digital painting of Harlech Castle in Wales, using a combination of landscape2 and Andy’s brushes AOP in DAP.

The original photograph is used with the kind permission of the photographer Steven Halford.

The English monarch Edward I built Harlech in the late 13th century. It was one of the most formidable of his fortresses, designed to contain the Welsh in their homeland.

Somewhat rare in an English Edwardian castle the magnificent medieval architecture of Harlech seems to grow from it’s stunning surroundings.

Construction was superinteded by a military architect of genius, Master James of St. George who was to become the resident governor between 1290-93.

I have opened a shop with CafePress to sell some of my designs on clothing, iPhone & laptop cases, jewellery and lots more:

    Nicely done. It has been many years since I visited Harlech. If I remember correctly when it was built, it would have been at the water’s edge but now it is several yards (Sorry. I am supposed to say metres now) from the sea.

  • Thank you :)
    I actually left England in 1986 and although I have had many visits back, I converted to metres then and have been driving on the right for many years.
    Maybe I should change my avatar to ExPat :)
    I still have masses of memories of England and also Scotland and the Outer Hebrides (where I also lived) and I now have quite a stock of Beautiful Britain pics waiting to upload.
