Evening: Bamburgh Castle - monotype

Northumberland Castles.....Dunstanburgh..

                                                                                       I recently visited Northumberland again, and we walked from Craster to Low Newton via Dunstanburgh Castle. The weather was not special but nevertheless the castle was such a powerful presence. In these 2 monotypes I have tried to evoke the strong sense of the layers of history and the past that is felt in this place.
