Les Andelys


I mentioned we had been to Normandy for a few days. I didn't do much other than walking but I did do the odd sketch. The little vignette above is of  the church in Les Andelys. This is the town that was built for the workers who constructed Chateau Gilliard.

Chateau Gilliard was King Richard (Lion Heart) 's Castle. Although he was King of England he left England when he was 6 years old and never came back, not even to see Robin Hood! (Please note Hollywood). His heart is buried in Fontevraud Abbey and his heart in Rouen Cathedral.

I have started working on a painting of Newquay and should be finished tomorrow.
