The drawing of Lee Castle was completed in 2008, and was commissioned by a private client. This is the last drawing of architecture I have completed to date. This was a challenging image to create, because of the level of detail involved and the sheer size of the drawing (when it was finished, the drawing was several feet across.) As part of the agreement with the client, I retained the copyright to the image and was able to post it here. Unfortunately, when creating the page I made a large mistake and listed the castle as being in England, not Scotland. Some months later, I received a terse email from someone pointing out my error and how Robert the Bruce would be rolling over in his grave should this castle be in England. I corrected the error immediately.
Lee Castle, also known as "The Lee", is a large ornamental palace located in South Lanarkshire in Scotland. The building is the ancestral home of the Lockhart family, which owned it until the mid-20th century when it was sold. The grounds the castle sits on covered many acres of land, most of which was broken up and sold in lots. Although it appears to be a medieval style castle, with functional turrets and battlements, it is an ornamental building constructed in the early 19th century, long after castles were no longer needed in the area. The architect was James Gillespie Graham (1776-1855) and designed by Thomas White the Younger (1764-1836)
