Like those Seago colours and big sky - and the brush marks in the gesso. Also look forward to reading the article.

Look forward to seeing the article Alan, I can see the Seago but also a lot of AB. Love the painting especially those lovely expressive marks in the sky.

Wow amazing from imagination! Nice strokes and good composition. I like it 😏

Fabulous Alan! I love how your brush marks in the prepared ground almost form the shape of the cloud mass above the barges. Beautifully painted.

A superb painting Alan , and done beautifully with your attention to the finer points.

Another great painting Alan, love the cloud formations and colours.

A fantastic scenery, Alan. Great painting.

An absolute stunner, Alan! Superb brushwork, excellent composition and tons of atmosphere. Splendid work!

Quite simply a stunning piece of art!

This is a beautiful painting Alan.

Perfect palette Alan beautifully balanced between dark and light tones and colours.

Lovely scene...anything based on a Seago style is good with me!

Really like this - the great expanse of sky and warm foreground colours.

Really like this Alan, you are a master of skies I have to say.

What a gorgeous sky

An excellent painting!

Super duper, Alan!

Reminds me of Turner!

Part of a feature on Seago for 'The Artist'. A nautical painting from imagination, but ‘loosely’ based on Seago’s style of painting - working with a similar colour palette and introducing those trademark barges. I’ve prepared my ground with a mix of gesso and chalk, giving me a more absorbent base to work on, adding brush marks to this base mix. Seago used rabbit skin glue and white lead, but we can’t go along that route. Oil on board 40 x50cm
