Roghman twice sketched Loevestein Castle from a distance on long rectangular sheets of paper. The first drawing presents the complex from the opposite side of the Waal River; the second one from the land. Roghman ran out of space while making the second drawing and therefore sketched the remainder of the ramparts at the lower right.
