loose lines and therefore so full of life and energy

Congrats Alan, I'm sure this commission will be a great success, and look forward to seeing more of this work. Already looking good.

Great informative sketch Alan.

Congratulations Alan! An interesting collection of shapes and lines...looking good!

Fantastic news Alan, congratulations! The sketch is lovely too!

Smashing and congrats Alan. what a coup. Super initial work in the sketch.

Congratulations loose yet informative

Congratulations, Alan! So well deserved! This is superb - a wonderful range of tones and lines, and a lovely composition. Excellent work indeed!

Thank you all for your support, the actual paintings will be in watercolour, full imperial, and in a very loose style as per my Durham sketches posted some time ago.<br /><br />I am however, submitting a loose oil sketch of each composition to establish that we have the right composition for the client, prior to starting the final watercolours.

Like this just as it is Alan ; the different strengths in the line work, the subtle blue washes. So pleasing to look at.

Sounds like a great commission and I love this study Alan.

I echo Seok. Excellent news. I hope we will be allowed to see the end result ....

Hang on Studio Wall

One of many loose sketches that I am working on for a commission. I have been approached by London based interior design group, via POL, to produce a series of paintings for a pub in Shooters Hill, Bexley, which they are refurbishing.
