Criccieth Castle and Beach at Low Tide

Criccieth Castle and Beach at Low Tide

Really like the loose feel to this, the spattering representing the rocks in the foreground and the silhouetted castle look great. The background of the Lleyn peninsula is also effective, very nice. ( and that lovely splash of red)

Great movement!

I really love those blues Alan and the composition of the whole painting is brilliant! A real eye-catcher!

Went on holiday there a couple of times Alan, beautiful place just like your painting.

Works a treat Alan. Very pleasing to study.

Fantastic Alan! Love the sweeping strokes in the sky, the hazy silhouette of the castle and the reflection of the light on the water is gorgeous.

Agree with all Alan with magical light. Stunning

Great use of blue and white here!

Love this one Alan very well painted lovely and free great colours really like it.

Lovely loose and colourful work.

Hi Alan! Your new watercolours works very well in your hands. This is a very impressionistic painting.

Oooooh yes.. My old stamping ground. Love it .

I'd recognize those brush-strokes anywhere..... got to be a Bickley!

Wow..... dramatic lovely technique

Love the colours in this Alan ..There is a lovely evening glow to this, and I too like the spatteingr give a great texture to the foreground.

Thank you all for some great comments, it gives me much encouragement to pursue this loose style of work.

WOW - those colours and shapes are so exciting Alan
