Beautiful blue skies and spectacular views throughout. Easy two mile stroll (with some slight inclines) from Alpha Cottage, stopping at the penfold for a brew!
Tried another painting of the moors this week, based on a photo I took last August on the moors above Goathland station while we were waiting for a train back to Whitby. The heather was in full bloom and very striking shades of pink and purple contrasting with the dark vegetation. I used layers of acrylic paint and spray paint to build up textures.
See more of my artwork. Some items for sale, this one already has a home!
Rievaulx Abbey, near Helmsley, was the first Cistercian monastery in the north of England, founded in 1132 by twelve monks from France.
Its remote location was well suited to the order's ideal of a strict life of prayer and self-sufficiency with little contact with the outside world.
Now managed by the English Heritage, it is an inspiring place, well worth a visit. A tour by Brother Antony is not to be missed!
