Alan Stones: Drawn from Life

Alan Stones: Drawn from Life

Renowned Cumbrian artist Alan Stones presents his latest collection of artwork titled Drawn from life, which is compiled from across his artistic career. Each artwork has been directly 'Drawn from Life'.


Alan Stones has developed this collection with a shared connection in mind- that being that they are all drawn directly from life.
This extensive collection features charcoal drawings made in the 1980's of people at work in a bakery in Doncaster. Colour lithographs, also made in the 1980s depict Cumbrian farmers at work in the fields.
Two featured oil paintings will also feature– one a street scene and the other a painting of Hartley cafe at St Bees as well as further drawings made directly from life.
