Weston Church, Autumn Sunset.

A beauty Alan full of exciting marks and movement with great light yes a beauty

I know exactly what you mean Alan - I get the same rush with my abstracts which I don't get with more traditional slow slog work - so exciting and and almost always a great result as you have here - also I find these so much more exciting to look at in the gallery - this is great do post more.

Fantastic Alan!! Exciting and spontaneous, love the wonderful marks and washes. I agree with Michael....more please!

Very stunning sunset and great washes, Alan. Great watercolour!

A lot of dynamics and emotion in this. Great job!

This is a beauty Alan when you paint continually you occasionally hit a cracker and you have here love it Alan .

Fabulous, loose and dramatic sky. Love the calligraphy too!<br />

Nailed it in 5 Alan. superb

The power in this takes my breath away !

5 minutes! Alan, now I&#39;m truly envious! That is one amazing piece, full of impact, as you say, but so well composed and beautifully executed that one would never guess it wasn&#39;t a planned piece. Excellent, excellent work indeed!

Love your colour palette!

Excellent Alan , one can feel your delight through this beautifully expressive sketch

A lot of energy has gone into this Alan...love the limited palette of strong dark colours, and touch of white.
