After 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
A commissioned pen and ink drawing of the tunnels beach in Ilfracombe, North Devon. Now with it’s happy owner in Birmingham. More information can be found on their website http://www.tunnelsbeaches.co.uk/. It’s a wonderful suntrap of a beach with a natural rock swimming pool. If you’re ever in Ilfracombe on a sunny day then it’s certainly worth a visit. Al

Pilton Church February 2014. My local church just behind where I live and twice a week we hear the bells. Not a religious person but I love walking around the old graveyard here. I am still trying to find a printer/scanner big enough to manage this picture. My intention is to make a run of limited additions.
With my more Buddhistic and Eastern beliefs I’ve managed to incorporate a rather nice OM into the evergreen tree on the left.
