Monastery in the landscape

A quick ink pen sketch of La Preghiera, a former monastery, surrounded by green wooded hillsides. This traquil setting has been the refuge of peace and serenity for over a 1000 years and its no wonder. Save for the noise from the occassional hunter or tractor it is a most peaceful location. As it is situated on the old St Francesco trail to Assisi, I wouldn't be surprised if the man himself hadn't called by on his travels.

Very nice sketch, and a wonderfully enticing place to see. I want to go here. Sketch more...before the rains!
