Whitby Abbey


This is so nice Linda I like it a lot . The sky looks very angry and full of menace.

Such wonderful atmosphere Linda, like it a lot

That sky is wonderfully menacing.

The sky is wonderful Linda, very powerful.

This is so impressively dramatic Linda. Can see Frankenstein emerging any moment.

Really atmospheric, splendid painting.

I think I can see The Count in one of the windows Linda. A superbly menacing atmosphere that you have caught here.

Thanks everyone for your comments, did think about putting Count Dracula in the background emerging from the abbey with his Cape flying around him 😂😂😂

Really atmospheric, Linda!

Wow, so atmospheric

Super painting Linda, excellent sky, reflections and light

Thank you Anne, Romila and David, I really appreciate your comments.

Looks great Linda, stark and defiant -well painted

Thanks Willie, much appreciate your comment 👍

Great drama, wonderful painting Linda.

The sky certainly does look menacing, great contrast with the building and foreground.

Hang on Studio Wall

Painted this a few times in watercolour but never in oils, my adaption, wanted the sky to look menacing, colours used, ultramarine, burnt umber, yellow ochre and titanium white, oil on 10 x 12 board. All advice and criticism welcomed
