Chepstow Castle is freely painted in watercolour. The castle is perched on top of the cliffs with the sheer faces of the rock rising out of the water. The atmospheric blue in the background is contrasted by the green foliage around the castle. The River Wye is quickly sketched with minimal brushstrokes.
