My digital impressionist painting, using Bierstadt in DAP plus Gimp, of Harlech Castle in Wales.

Original out of copyright black and white engraving from the Gutenberg Project.

Spectacularly sited Harlech Castle seems to grow naturally from the rock on which it is perched. Like an all seeing sentinel, it gazes out across land and sea, keeping a watchful eye over Snowdonia.
The English monarch Edward I built Harlech in the late 13th century to fulfil this very role. It was one of the most formidable of his ‘iron ring’ of fortresses designed to contain the Welsh in their mountain fastness.

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

  • Men of Harlech, stop your dreaming
    Can’t you see their spearpoints gleaming
    See their warrior pennants streaming
    To this battle field

    Men of Harlech stand ye steady
    It can not be ever said ye
    For the battle were not ready
    Welshmen never yield
