On the Braunton Marsh.

duck on the marshPen & Ink drawing of a duck on the Braunton Marsh 320 x 260mm.  At the moment this wonderful habitat to wildlife and beautiful area of Braunton is under threat as a dyke has broken down and the sea in moving inland.  The Braunton Marshes are a hidden asset of North Devon supporting wildlife of national and international importance. It’s now under imminent serious threat. An environmental disaster is looming on the horizon due to a sea breach of great significance unless immediate action is undertaken by relevant parties.

Autumn sun in the Doone Valley.

Doone ValleyAfter a walk on Exmoor and an iPhone shot this is the result.   A pen & ink sketch of a scene along the walk.  I loved the stark brightness of the Autumn sun and decided to draw what I saw.  The highlights along the path really stand out this time of year.  This will be printed as a limited edition as seen below.  A few adjustments have been made and the sun’s shine has been made more circular.  Al

Billy Gibbons.


Billy Gibbons (Pen & Ink with some Bideford Black coal based pigment) 290mm x320mm.  Just a brief travel back to my draughtsman & illustration days to produce this study of the Famous Mr Gibbons from ZZ Top.  Managed to see them at this year’s Glastonbury Festival and still rocking!  Al

Pilton Church.

With my more Buddhistic and Eastern beliefs I’ve managed to incorporate a rather nice OM into the evergreen tree on the left.
