To Alan

Alan has his style, and I love it. You have yours, and I love that too. Very different styles, but both valid. For me, as you know, it is your pen and wash that puts you head and shoulders above ordinary.

Thank you very much for this lovely and positive comment, Tony. I appreciate this very much.

O dear, o dear, how difficult is that. I wanted to paint a watercolour landscape in Alan's "style" to thank him for all his tuition. At the end, I could not resist the temptation of putting in some details with my pen, and so: it was not like Alan's at all!! After taking a picture of the painting to put on the net, I saw more mistakes... I think I do it all over again after reading your comments! But: I don't want to "copy" Alan, I know I have my own style but just trying to paint so lively and sunny...
