Ruins near Valetta Harbour - Malta.

Another fine "detail with no detail" painting Alan. Love it.

Has a lovely laid back, holiday feel, lovely subtle sky.

Fabulous palette and atmosphere, Alan.

Great atmospheric painting, Alan. You're right, Malta has some amazing architecture.

Just lovely Alan, the colours work so well.

I like this style that you are developing Alan....a lot of freedom and expression.

Coming on brilliant Alan

Your colours put great atmosphere, Dennis.

Love the colours here Alan and the specks of white are perfect :)

Many thanks to all of you who commented, I always enjoy reading them.

You've certainly got atmosphere Alan. I love the harmonious palette too.

Hang on Studio Wall

14 x 24in oil on board. Malta is a great favourite destination and I've been over a couple of times, there is some wonderful architecture to draw. Worked up in the studio with the emphasis on atmosphere and in my preferred loose style which I am trying to develop further.
