Barry Docks, Early Sunrise.

Stunning work, Alan, the brushstrokes are superb!

Going to be a cracker Alan, smashing marks.

Pretty darn good - look forward to the bigger version.

Love the mix of styles in this Alan, part traditional and monochrome and contemporary and colourful. It works well!

this is going to be a cracker, have a real soft spot for your previous works of industrial scenes which are brilliant, and this looks to have the makings of another great painting.

A good sketchy look to this one Alan, full of life!

Fab, lush and rich. The larger version will most likely be equally exciting.

Nice piece of work Alan I like it and especially the colours in this one ,well done.

Love the vivid yet precise brushwork of this piece, Alan. It's brimming with atmosphere and movement. Superb!


Busy, busy busy! I love the energy and without the bright yellow it would have been another harbour scene.

Thanks everyone for some interesting comments, I did throw that yellow on at the death Frank, and you are so right.
