I wonder have any of you seen a painting called "Meeting on the Turret Stairs" by Frederic William Burton. It's a very romantic painting and I love it. It's in the National Gallery of Ireland. I'd be interested to see what others think about it.

Rod, your watercolours are great. I tried watercolours a while ago. I might have another go. Did you paint Cahir Castle while in Ireland or from a photo?
