Your style of painting is awe inspiring Alan

Love the strong application of paint Alan, a striking piece.

Very exciting picture. Love the movement of the paint.

Such a confident and fresh painting, Alan, I like this one as well.

Loving this new approach with dollops of paint, placed in the right places time and time again. Another gem.

Great stuff Alan, I can see that you are on a roll here.

Amazing work Alan, very impressive with bold colours and great movement.

Stunning vibrant brushwork, Alan, and an extraordinary result! Fabulous!

Well done with those brush strokes

Very exciting work Alan....wonderful!

Recognised your style immediately, Alan. Lovely work, particularly the sky. Thank you for your lovely comments on my Bee, Alan. Very kind of you indeed. I have entered my 'Two Amigos' for the Ken Bromley Cover Competition. My Bee will still be on exhibit with the SAA. What have you entered this time?
