St. Hilarion, Cyprus.

St. Hilarion, Cyprus.

So atmospheric with your usual strong palette - must get to the Castle one day - have been to Kyrenia but only on a day trip by coach - we have a place in the south and it's not that easy to travel to the north as we usually hire a car locally and to the North is strictly not allowed.

Beautiful and loose full of atmosphere

Great artmosphere in this one, Alan, wonderful painting.

So well made Alan love it

Beautiful ghostly image Alan, I bet the view is stunning.

Hi Alan, I have made an unconscious slip writing artmosphere, but so it is, there is very ART-mosphere.

Not been to this place, but seeing your painting is the next best thing

Splendid piece of work Alan and very Turneresque indeed

Love the looseness Alan.

Lovely, loose interpretation of this scene Alan, as has already been said, it has touch of Turner's style to it, perhaps they will make a film about you soon!

Hang on Studio Wall

Watercolour on Fabriano 300lb, 11 x 15''. More from my holiday sketch books, this is a 10th Century Byzantine monastery, sitting high on a mountain, amazing views if you can manage the walk up.
