Cumbre Del Sol – Costa Blanca.

Cumbre Del Sol – Costa Blanca.

Recognised your distinctive style immediately Alan. Those lovely warm siennas and rich blues radiating heat with that charming distant yacht. Superb.

Stand out picture with such vibrant colours. Splendid.

Wonderful interpretation of the scene, Alan - so vibrant and full of character...

Love the hot reds against the cool blues, Alan, and I especially like those houses on the left.

Another great vantage point and interpretation Alan.

Fantastic Alan, the colours give off so much heat!

Thanks guy's always appreciate feedback.

Wow....beautiful bright colours. Love this, Alan.

Wow Alan - fantastic colour!!!

Beautiful feeling of warmth in this painting

The warm colours certainly work Alan, and like the perspective.

Beautiful contrasting colours Alan and your interesting viewpoint looking down.

Hang on Studio Wall

Oil on MDF 20 x 20in. (50.8 x 50.8cm). A studio painting worked up from colour sketches and drawings made at the scene. Gorgeous earth colours such as ochre’s and sienna’s were used to convey the warmth of the terrain in this stunning landscape. The road down to the small beach snakes around the mountain and is pretty hair-raising to drive down! That all adds to the fun! This is one of several Spanish scenes that I am currently working on from my recent trip – that’s the benefit of recording information in sketch books, an invaluable source of inspiration. I've kept the buildings low key in this piece, so as not to distract the eye of the viewer too much. As always, my own interpretation of the scene, I never strive to copy nature!
