Hello dear Steemians,
I am glad to present you my painting today that mostly done with watercolor but in order to makes small details I used pastels, as I could not get concentrated watercolor paints. But no worries just be creative.
Recently looking through our old photographs I found a picture of Carew Castle that was done few years ago when we lived in Pembrokeshire, South East Wales. The castle itself is ruin and open for people viewing and photographing. During those years we visited many historical places and castles, by the way there are so many castles there, even some of them haunted.

The one I remember very well, we were there in Autumn as my son heard from his friends that in front of that castle, they organize a Medieval Event with Knights, battles, all people dressed up in ancient costume. Unfortunately when we were there, it was no play but many tourists, we spend couple of hours and sat at café table opposite the castle with out hot chocolate. That was a view from our café table, spectacular and magnificent construction, although destroyed but still telling us a lot of its history.
By the way the photo is done by my husband.
My step-by-step process:
