  • I get a real sense of the place Alan, with the stillness and the colours used. It does feel like early morning, before the heat of the day. Here today, it's going to be positively balmy up north - 13 C! But it's sunny and no wind so a walk on the beach first, being very careful not to come a cropper this time! ( hand is actually broken)

  • It certainly has that early morning feel and I like the range of colours you used.

  • Beautifully done Alan, fascinating to see your handling of the Mediterranean heat and light,especially as I’m just reading “Painting Shade and Light” by Paul Millichip, about the difference in light etc in the UK and on his travels abroad, a very good book.
    Marjorie, hope it’s not your painting hand?

  • Another good one Alan.

  • This has a romantic, medieval feel to it Alan. Love those rich reds, siennas and warm umbers. Wish I was there, although we are lucky enough to see sunshine in the UK today. The buildings are beautifully rendered, something I really struggle with.

  • That another great scene Alan painted so well, I can feel the heat, lovely colour choices.

  • Nothing better than working outdoors Alan a lovely composition which is well painted. I don’t see any ragged edges but expect you are a bit like me where the bits that didn’t come out as you wanted stand out like a sore thumb, but of course nobody else sees them.

  • Gorgeous colours, really gives you a sense of being there 😀

  • Your sketches are too good to be called mere sketches Alan and are always a joy to look at. The colours and the dark shadows make this one rather special.
