Church Bay, Angelsey

Very strong watercolour Alan, has a different feel to your usual style but it does convey the feeling of a wild day by the sea. The lone fisher man must be a hardy soul!

That's a very hardy fisherman - painted presumably just before he found the ocean joining him on the cliff. Like the way that, although the sky is dark and particularly foreboding, light still shines through - in a rather sinister way, which I also like...

Thanks Stephen and Robert, yes their made of good stuff in Wales!

I've done a bit of beach casting, but not when the sea has look like this! Wonderful palette and a glorious sky...oh and I do love your daaarrrks!Lol.

classic watercolour could have come from the hands of the top artists in the world . Superb painting.

Thanks Fiona and Robert, but steady on Robert, I'm not sure about that but i'll take all the praise I can get, which doesn't happen too often these days! AB

Superb use of watercolour - very dramatic Alan

I love a bit of drama and this has it in bucket fulls. Lovely darks, Alan, atmospheric rough sea, I like the chosen colours very much. But I feel a bit sorry for the fisherman, maybe the yachtsmen, will soon be shipwrecked! Is there a lifeboat nearby?

Thanks for all the comments and I must say they have made me laugh, particularly Pat's.

Love the colours, the contrast. Very strong!
