  • Beautiful painting and the limited palette and the added white works a treat.

  • The limited palette pulls this super scene together so very well Alan!

  • Another amazing painting Alan. Love how you have used the strong black and limited colour, very striking indeed.

  • Nice lively drawing. Where did you get your source material from as most of the proportions are exaggerated and not visible from one point. A better title would be -Impressions of Durham- as you cannot see the Cathedral from any part of Silver Street, it only comes into view after the end of the street part way across Framwelgate Bridge.

  • A beautiful illustrator's interpretation of a stunning subject which I like very much. Art should tell a story by way of an illusion or an impression. It should not be about photo realism, that is best supplied with photography. I'm not a great fan of the limited palette but the sepia tones do this work of art justice...well done.

  • I love the limited use of colour here, with the black and white it is very striking. Is it acrylics or pastel?
