Late Evening along the Riva Schiavoni, Venice Artist Alan Cotton


Original Pen & Ink


Working quickly, trying to capture moving figures I drew the outlines of the people hurrying by and then used a brush with ink and water, to flood the outlines and capture the light. As drawing is the basis of my paintings, those which include tone, rather than just lines, remind me of the impact the subject made on me.
