  4. I love castles, but we've never visited Castle Drogo. It looks pretty well complete, so must have been interesting to see inside. Your sketch and the afternoon shadows are lovely.

    1. Thanks Jez. At the time of our visit it was undergoing a lot of renovation works, but then it was nice to see how they were going about it. Hope to go back again some time.

  5. Lovely watercolor sketch. Castle Drogo sound so sinister but it does not look that way.

    1. I know what you mean Fran....I think Drago would sound better, but I guess it has been there too long to change its name just for me :-)

  7. Very interesting castle. I agree with Fran, the name does sound sinister but yet the castle itself looks very quiet. Great job!
