November Challenge


This is very eye catching Alan. Love the tonal contrasts of the blacks and whites and the lovely ink markings.

Yes, definitely an eye catcher, Alan. Splendid drawing!

Excellent drawing Alan. Really like the distant trees.

Excellent contrasts Alan, you have also included a wonderful variety of marks and tones. Love the Magpie!

This is lovely, Alan, super tonal contrasts. The little bird is a nice touch!

So effective Alan. Works really well on tinted paper. I’ve got some somewhere you have inspired me .

Thanks guys, appreciated.

Another great Alan, love the white gouache on the grey, really makes it.

My fourth and possibly final attempt at this month’s challenge. 10 x 9in drawing on Steel Grey Canson Mi-Teintes. Rigger brush and black acrylic ink/white gouache.
