An A3 print of a watercolour of Hadleigh Castle in Essex, England. The remnants of this mediieval royal castle overlook the Thames Estuary. Dark rain clouds are shown moving in from the county of Kent. The rain did come and I got very wet indeed as none of the ruins, which is mainly the castle wall and a turret, had a roof at all.
I am attracted to ruins, they always had a good story to tell and Hadleigh Castle is no different. They are often, naturally, located in some prominent locations. There is a great view across to the Thames Estuary and beyond. You can always see the weather coming well in advance. When I was there some workmen were doing some repairs to the turret, which must eventually join the rest of the curtain wall and fall. As I sketched in the howling wind and horizontal rain, they must have thought I was mad. I console myself that John Constable painted the castle in a suitable romantic style and his rival Turner would certainly have stood firm in the rain and sketched.
