Alan Martin is an engineer and artist…a pastellist. Soft chalky pastels are a great medium for blending with wonderful colour. Capturing aesthetic, expression, movement through precision, patience and practice.

Art is uplifting. The landscapes in particular are the brightest, most colourful, cheeriest thing in a room and are a constant personal reminder of things that are joyful.

Not all Alan’s art is displayed here. Behind each portrait are many drawings and hundreds of hours.

A selection of the art has been made available to order as Fine Art Giclee prints.

Stylistically, within the confines of pastels (so far) my art is ranging. Portraits, landscapes, ‘life drawing’ of sculptures, sport, dance. These are arranged into different galleries on this site.
