A digital painting, using Gruppe in DAP, of Byland Abbey, Coxwold, Yorkshire, England. Out of copyright source of the original black & white image is Knight, Charles: “Old England: A Pictorial Museum” (1845)

Byland Abbey was founded in 1117 by Roger de Mowbray, the nobleman whose estates were sequestrated by Henry I for disloyalty, and then given to another nobleman, also of Norman extraction, who took the Mowbray name, and founded the great family of the Mowbrays, Dukes of Norfolk and Earls of Nottingham. The exquisite form of the lancet windows yet remaining in a part of the ruins, shows that Byland has been a beautiful and stately abbey.

I have opened a shop with CafePress to sell some of my designs on clothing, iPhone & laptop cases, jewellery and lots more:
