Plein air Devon land and seascape!


I particularly liked the silhouette of the buildings against the lighter backdrop of the sea!

So very expressive Alan and a great sense of space.

So good Alan yet so little to it , simplicity at its best .

Good sketch, a fine example of ‘less is more’.

Simple and brilliant.

Simply very effective Alan.

Lovely, Alan!

This is lovely work, Alan. A good command of tonal values especially within the middle distance.

Lovely, Alan, and yes, it would work up beautifully!

Less is definitely more here, Alan. I love the different tones.

Very striking and original Alan.

Love the light sea, indicative of looking south on the Devon Coastline. Well captured Alan!

Perfect in its simplicity Alan

Hang on Studio Wall

Couldn’t resist sketching this gorgeous vista of both land and sea… Fineliner pen and Tombow pen on Strathmore Toned Gray paper A4. Payne’s Grey artist’s watercolour for the halftones. It would make a decent watercolour back in the studio, Wesson style probably!
