Love this, Alan. Super palette.

I love those brush strokes, Alan.

You certainly have Alan, lovely movement in your brush strokes and love the colours you have used especially in the cloud formation 😀

Love the movement and mark making!

This is lovely Alan. The light in the water is gorgeous and really eye catching.

This is magical Alan! Love everything about it..

Very atmospheric with those storm clouds gathering and the sparkle on the sea.

I thought this was super when I saw the gallery thumbnail, and now I am staggered that you can create such an atmospheric painting in thirty minutes. 12 x 12 may be small for you but it is hardly a miniature

30 minutes? Amazing Alan!

That's a cracker, Alan and such accuracy with speed! Excellent...and huge congratulations on your success at Patchings, so very well deserved!

Excellent work, Alan...more so for a 30 minute job. Lively and fresh.

Very impressive painting, Alan.

Very different - effective!

Remarkable impression, Alan, and in only 30 minutes. Super mood, great light and wonderful atmosphere. I really like this one. I'm still scratching my "ahem" after 30 mins. Sheesh! Bri

This certainly does have life Alan, like it very much. Lovely light reflecting into the water.

Love that light in the sky Alan, beautiful painting as always.

Love the 'sparkle' and the clouds Alan.

It’s lovely Alan , it has a lovely loose freshness about it

A very dynamic and atmospheric painting Alan! Love it! Love those seagulls swooping round over the water!

Hang on Studio Wall

30 x 30cm oil on board. Tiny size for me and painted this morning from memory, having worked on a small series a while back. About 30 minutes to complete at most, but I hope that I've invigorated a bit of life into it.
