Castleton from Peveril
There is a great view from Peveril Castle over the rooftops of Castleton
using a lot of artistic license. Hidden in the picture are cafes, pubs, gift shops,
a visitor centre, old mansion houses and a fish and chip shop. Apart from the main town being such a base for
walking and other sports, the surrounding area is a hive of agricultural industry, which is depicted in my painting.
As a family we have always loved going there at Christmastime. We love the brightly lit Christmas trees above all
the shops on the Main Street and visits to the Christmas Grotto. Perhaps a subject for another painting?
