Bamburgh Castle Limited Edition Print
The site was originally the location of a Celtic Brittonic fort. After passing between the Britons and the Anglo-Saxons three times, the fort came fully under Anglo-Saxon control in 590. The fort was destroyed by Vikings in 993, and the Normans later built a new castle on the site, which forms the core of the present one. After a revolt in 1095 supported by the castle’s owner, it became the property of the English monarch.
In the 17th century it was finally bought by William Armstrong. The castle still belongs to the Armstrong family today and is open to the public.
These scenes are something I like doing a lot, especially with Oils. I love the bursts of sunlight shining through the trees in the distance. There’s nothing like walking on a beach at sunset or sunrise and watch time pass. It calms the mind and fills me with great enthusiasm for painting. A walk is always guaranteed to make me feel creative. My style of painting is one which has developed over time and is still evolving with each new painting. I try to capture a sense of realism, of being there, with out being a slave to photo realism. It’s also important to keep pushing the boundaries of what your comfortable with, not to settle into a formula of what works.
