Kasteel Hoensbroek

Acceptable weather this afternoon at last!
I passed our town's medieval castle (kasteel Hoensbroek) and thought, hey, it's about time to make an outdoor sketch again.
I have more or less lived across the street from this castle for 10 years, but only rarely drew it. Often you don't see the beauty from everyday presence around you any more.
A lesson in looking around.

This is the entrance gate to the first courtyard, with the smallest tower of the main building in the back. There are three courtyards in total, all separated by outbuildings, gates, bridges and deep moats.
