Early Morning Sketch (Spain) - Plein air.

Apologies for not commenting for a while, internet signal issues in the outback!

Nicely done Alan. The colour combination works very well on tinted paper.

Great little sketch Alan. Lovely to be able to paint outdoors. Impossible to do so in the UK just now.

Lovely sketch Alan, and a wish I was there painting Plein air.

This is lovely Alan, and especially effective on the tinted paper, suits your style. Enjoy Spain. I just walked the dog and was nearly blown off my feet, so am envious!

Really like the limited colours, it's very crisp and clean looking a lovely sketch 😀

Lovely Alan I know just what you mean

Good strong confident sketch, Alan. Love it.

Delightful sketch Alan. Hope you're having a great time in the "outback"!

Very different and interesting - like the background tint.

Ah, you are in Spain. Another good sketch!

Beautiful little sketch, Alan.

Great sketch. Goods trees and like the red roofs.

It looks great Alan, I like the addition of the red and the touches of white.

Hang on Studio Wall

This is one of the many small hamlets near my casa. I’m working with oils, watercolour and these simple pen and ink studies which are the easier option. I’m trying to limit each one to around 15/20 minutes, any longer and they lose their fluency. A4 Strathmore Tan paper. Bits of colour and white were added later. I’ll just post a few of them during my stay so you don’t get bored!, also a few quick oil painting studies done plein air.
