Nautical Themed Sketch

There is a bit of pastel pencil in there also…

Very good, a nice limited range of colours and the texture of the paper has worked well here.

Great sketch Alan.

A lively sky, enhanced by the tonal values of the landscape.

Good sketch Alan, like the way you've treated the foreground

I like it all Alan but I’m intrigued by the way you have created your sky. Really good one.

Love that spontaneous sky Alan and how you manage to portray detail without being slavish about it.

Lively scene Alan, lively imagination! I do like the dark blue in the sky it balances nicely with the land.

Lovely, fresh and lively sketch Alan. I like the way you've retained a lot of the white paper.

Great contrasts and spacious sketch Alan.

Beautiful little sketch, great compostion 🥰

I like the cool sparse colour of this one Alan.

Thanks guys, appreciated… it may make an oil painting at some point!

A wonderful sketch Alan.

Great work Alan.

This one jumped out at me Alan. Great imagination, wonderful pen work, as always. Colours are interesting.

Missed this earlier, don't know how as it's instantly recognisable as one of yours Alan, brilliantly done as always.

Everything balances out Good composition Love it

Your imagination has worked really well here Alan - a beautiful piece of work!

Love it! Really effective, Alan

Lovely fresh multimedia painting. Must try the paper.

Nicely balanced with line wash composition and colour

Wow, love it!

This is beautiful done Alan , a subject I know you are very fond of and it reflects in your work.

Beautiful sensitive drawing Alan. And love the touches of pastel.

Hang on Studio Wall

A little pen/brush and watercolour wash on Hahnemuhle Bamboo Eco Paper. A scene from my imagination!
