The Abbey

If you’ve visited this place hopefully you can recognise it in this painting, this is an interpretation of Whitby Abbey. I challenged myself to paint this now as I’ll be visiting it again soon and I intend painting it again after the visit. The last time I physically visited the Abbey was about 15 years ago (God I’m getting old!) so the version I’ve painted here is from memory and whatever images I could steal (ahem, get inspiration) from Google. It’ll be interesting to see how much variation there will be when I do the next painting of the Abbey after visiting it a new.
