Walking Along the Cycle Path

Walking Along the Cycle Path

This is really good Barry, clean crisp washes. I also never leave home without a small sketch pad and my camera.

Thank you Alan, although I do the same I don’t always follow up and cast a creative eye over the results and probably miss a lot of potential subject material. A note to self “don’t ignore what is in your own back yard”.

Perfect Barry, brilliant shadows and distant colour. Good composition.

Thank you Carole, as far as the composition is concerned on reflection I think the figures would have been better shown up if they were in front of the bush.

A simple,scene superbly painted. Really lovely Barry.

A beautiful sunny scene, painted with your usual elan. An antidote to the grey days down here.

Thank you John I appreciate your comments and if it’s lifts the mood of a dull day job done aye Lewis.

Thank you Mike, I don’t know about you but it’s often the ones you least expect to be successful that turn out best.

This is a cracker , it's one of your best Barry a really well executed warercolour, love it.

Very nice Barry, the shadows give it life. Has a Wesson feel.

Lovely! Harmonious colours and the shadows make the picture. Well done Barry.

Thank you Dennis, Stephen, Maureen and Michael, agree about the shadows I think they need to be transparent but dark enough and put down in one positive stroke. Of course I don’t always achieve the desired effect.

This is wonderful Barry!

Love the sunlit path Barry. Lovely painting.

Thank you Karen and Carole, just shows what’s available on our own doorstep.

Lovely sunlight and shadows Barry.

Wow Barry this is top Pro work. You hit the heights with style and mastery

Love the composition Barry, the way the path leads you to the figures and the round tree or bush, shadows also spot on.

Thank you Val, Dennis and Tessa.

A beautiful scene beautifully painted, Barry.

Beautifully painted - lovely.

Thank you Thalia and Margaret, this one flowed and I am hoping to keep my level high.

Another beautiful painting, Barry.

What a wonderful scenery Barry, the light is so beautifully caught and everything is harmonious and calm.

Beautiful watercolour Barry, your shadows are great.

Thank you Cesare, Satu and Margaret as always you comments are welcome and appreciated.

Bravo, a great job! Can I ask what paper is it? Soon I will have a solo exhibition with drawings in Sofia, and I will mainly paint Arsh and Saunders. Papers are great! :)

Thank you Vasil it’s Saunders Waterford 300 gms rough paper.

Hang on Studio Wall

On my daily walks I often take photos with a view to producing a painting but they are usually forgotten. I decided to have a trawl through my forgotten snaps and this is my painting from the one I selected.

About the Artist
Barry Hulme

I started painting in 2004, I am influenced by Wesson, Seago and many of the great masters, more recently I enjoy the work of Steve Hall, John Hoar and Alvaro Castignet to name but a few. I paint in a loose style and try to simplify as I can. The medium I enjoy most is watercolour but dabble with…
