Nice simple composition works really well , great use of pastels Alan

Like this, Alan, composition, colours and the wide format.

Good to see you back posting and in a different medium too. Super work as always.

Agree with the comments above, love the composition, colours and format. Great that it has made the top line.

A lovely scene Alan and I would never have guessed this was pastel. I have recently started dabbling with pastels but have a long way to go yet!

Beautiful pastel and nice composition, Alan.

Good to see you back Alan. This is a beauty, marvellous pastel painting.

I agree with the comments above, this is super, Alan.

Like everything about this...very hangable.

Beautiful pastel, Alan. When I first saw it I thought it was a watercolour.

Beautiful scene Alan, glad to see your postings again.

Very nice sketch Alan

Good to see your work again Alan, love the format.

Lovely pastel Alan

Lovely rolling winter hillside all in your unique style Alan.

Blimey Alan, when I looked quickly at the gallery this morning this was at the top of page one.....can’t believe it’s almost on page four already! At least we can enjoy it over the weekend on the top line. Welcome back, good to see you posting. A very subdued start, but a fabulous pastel.

Nice one Alan. Just enough looks cold!

So well controlled, beautiful

Thank you all so much for your positive comments. I don't use pastels that often although I do enjoy their qualities.

Another absolute beauty Alan!!

Sparse, spare and nailed.

Lovely pastel work, the delicate shades in this.

Bleak and beautiful Alan

Love it. It is so peaceful somehow...

Hang on Studio Wall

Pastel 15 x 45cm. Simple snow scene taken from earlier sketch book drawings. I've been away so apologies for not commenting during this time.
