Moraira Beach (Costa Blanca) - Plein air sketch.

Another loose but comprehensive sketch to work from at a later date Alan. The white highlights really do lift an ink sketch on that lovely paper. Will you bring the oils back with you to work on? Got your message, would you like me to take the dust sheets off and get some shopping in for you

Lovely work again Alan, 😀

Valuable work Alan lovely piece

The white areas on tinted is always so effective.

Another super sketch, Alan. Love the white on that tinted board, very effective.

You’ve hit on a winning style Alan, another beauty.

Has an antique feel, the white painted areas do give the scene a lift.

Another lovely sketch Alan. I know this part of Spain well as I had a cousin who lived here and visited quite frequently. You’re going to be a busy bee if you plan to develop these lovely sketches Alan.

Looks lovely Alan, hope you had a paddle in the sea! Great sketch.

Very good and very effective Alan.

I do like these ink sketches Alan. Very satisfying.

Another lovely sketch Alan. I look forward to seeing the paintings when you return home.

Well thanks again for your support, always appreciated. I will select a few to paint in oils on my return no doubt, I've managed to do a few oils at the scene also.

You do have some great sketches Alan. Love the view point in this one.

I’m loving these sketches, Alan.

Hang on Studio Wall

Yet another of my current ink sketches that may be of some use at a later date. This is a very quiet part of the beach, as you can see by just the one couple sitting there. Mind you, it is only March! I’ve been working on a few oil paintings as well, although these haven’t all gone to plan - it happens! Indian ink on A4 Strathmore Tan paper.
