Lovely colours and pen work in this Malcolm. A good story too :)

Thanks a lot for taking the time to look and to comment on my work Sarah, much appreciated.

Lovely pen work and colours Malcolm - and the gravestones add interest to the composition.

Thanks very much for your comments and the observation about the gravestones Jenny, much appreciated.

I love the title and I love the painting Malcolm! You're getting more adventurous with your scribbles and marks, they seem much looser and free which has brought it to life.

Thanks Fiona that means a lot coming from the master of the pen and wash.🎓 ✍🏻🎨 Because you know what I think about your pen work.

I have always assumed its called spider alley because in Autumn when it was really enclosed with trees and bushes, it was always strung with cobwebs covered in dew which I showed my young daughter at the time how to collect on a circle made from a twig.
