Back to Painting after a long break

I haven't painted for over two years, why you ask?  Well I got caught up in knitting and
was absorbed by it through two years.  But lately I had to ask myself if knitting was
really how a wanted to spend most of my time, and did those I knit for appreciate it
as much I loved making things for them.  I decided..... maybe not.
I will still knit for the few that really like what I make for them, but confine my knitting to the evenings when I want to sit and rest.

What I really love to do is paint and even though things aren't selling right now, I still enjoy the process, so back down into my studio I go.....painting things just for myself and the enjoyment I get from it.

I've been reading a lot about Knights, Maidens and Castles lately and doing some research into those places where the stories take place.  I've seen some beautiful castles and ruins and this is what I've started painting.

Here are the first three watercolors.
