Ooo I like that one Alan, and your use of mixed media. Great !!!

A real eye-catcher, Alan.

Great colour combination. Really stands out with its simplify.

Brilliant and I add the comments I made on the forum.

It looks great especially from imagination , I use a lot of imagination when doing my landscapes it's hard but it stops me ending up with a photographic look .

Love this one Alan, those colours and mix of medium works really well.

Beautiful combination of media and many different marks Alan, the white gouache works beautifully.

This is a bit different in colour and pen marks. Very attractively, arresting Alan.

Well thanks everyone, appreciated - just a quick sketch but I love sketching in any medium.

This caught my eye immediately, Alan. I love the warm burnt sienna, one of my favourite colours.

The sienna wash has really made this pop Alan, super rigger work.

This is so effective, Alan, with the sepia , black and white and a good design

Love the graphic feel to this Alan, the combination of media works so well.

Whatever the medium/media it has your style Alan, and is rather striking. The limited palette works really well.

As said, the sienna works really well and compliments the blue.

9 x 9in drawing on mountboard applied with a watercolour wash of burnt sienna. Loosely drawn fungi growing under the base of a tree, almost entirely from imagination as I can't find any growing nearby. Rigger brush, acrylic ink and white gouache/conte pencil.
