Denia Marina (Spain) - Plein air sketch.

Great work, Alan. You are building up a wonderful set of sketches on this trip.

Wonderful sketch Alan, you will make surely a beautiful oil.

This is fantastic Alan. So difficult to simplify a complex scene. Have been back from Spain a couple of weeks but can’t wait to get back out there. It was gorgeous weather in January and February, ideal for painting Plein air. Not a chance of doing that here as it’s so cold and windy. Make the most of it Alan. ,

A very confident slick sketch.

Another excellent work Alan. Really like.

A fabulous series of sketches/paintings, Alan, this one is just great.

Very interesting sketch, love the series Alan.

Excellent sketch Alan and I like the added colour.

Lovely sketch Alan, and the touch of colour adds interest.

Super, confident sketch Alan. That touch of colour and the whites look good on the Tan paper.

Bother super sketch Alan.

It will make a smashing oil painting Allan, all your sketches look super. Hope it's warmer where you are!

Another beauty Alan 😀

Nice one Al, are you well chilled? Enjoying the warm sunshine I hope and not too much of the sangria. You are building up a wonderful collection of studies to bring home.

Another lovely painting, Alan

Great sketch Alan. You're certainly making the most of this trip.

Been to Denis a few times and this is very good, as are all of your current sketches/paintings.

Nice sketch Alan!

Hang on Studio Wall

Fabulous view from the slipway amongst all the colourful boats, it makes a great composition, if not a bit complicated at first sight! Will make a possible oil painting at some stage. That’s the historic Denia Castle in the distance. Indian Ink with a splash of watercolour on A4 Strathmore Tan paper.
