Santa Christina, Osma del Burgos, Spain by Colin Allbrook.
This is an original oil painting on canvas.
A short walk from the apartment in Osma through the park following the river, was this 15 century church Santa Christina. The day started cool and cloudy but as the sun came through this soon burned off and the sunlight lit up the colours and shape of the old building. The storks nesting on the bell tower are a common site throughout Spain and here, the parents were back and forth all day tending to the two chicks in the precariously balanced nest.
30 x 40cm.
Sold framed and ready to hang.
Signed ‘Colin Allbrook’ in the bottom right hand corner.
