  • This is a beauty Barry, love the way you have painted the foliage, with a mixture of soft and hard edges. A simple but good composition, with the winding path taking us through the open gate, past our familiar friends and on into the distance. Super work.

  • Thank you Stephen, I think over the years I have developed my ability to take photos that make good paintings.

  • Thank you Linda, getting the shadows to work is often difficult but so important.

  • Great as usual, Barry. Looking at the painting I get the impression that you paint the shadows last...is that right? (I don't do many landscapes, but I've tended to get the darks in first. As I do in my other pictures. Maybe it doesn't suit landscape?)

  • Thank you Lewis, your correct as this is watercolour and the accepted wisdom is to paint from light to dark. However, if I was using acrylic or oil I would establish the darks first and use opaque paint to create the light. I do know some watercolour painters who do put their darks in early which would suggest there is no right or wrong way my motto is “go with what works for you”

  • A superb piece, Barry. Love the rendering of light and the fabulously loose washes.

  • A beautiful idyllic scene which you have done perfectly, Barry. Love the purple/greens of the foliage.
