A dark brooding watercolour titled 'Castletown' of the inner harbour at Castletown, Isle of Man. Knox has chosen an unusual view of Castletown harbour, which captures a small section of the commercial quayside on a particularly dark and damp day. This contrasts with the more typical (and picturesque) views of Castletown bathed in sunshine with the medieval Castle Rushen in the background. The only relief from the greys and blues of the scene are the small colourful rowing boats in the harbour.
