Bamburgh Castle is instantly recognizable once seen, rising above the wonderful dunes and beach on the Northumbrian coast of the UK.

I had the good fortune to secure another week's painting holiday with all my new outdoor painting kit and this painting was one of the first I made while there. The castle silhouette sits darkly over the sun washed beach. It often is silhouetted when seen from the North against the sunlit sky. The light catches on the white top of the remainder of a windmill, built within the castle's grounds – the light often seems to. I always love the way the castle hugs the contour of its mound, almost appearing to tumble toward the beach from this angle.
