A Day in Cambridge

It's lovely, Barry, and what a great idea, so much light and life in this

Love this, Barry. It's your handling of detail that impresses, I know I'd be fussing away like mad, but you've done just what's needed. Excellent.

Thank you Thalia, I always try and get as much light and contrast as I can. Thanks Lewis I am not as good as you at detail and have to result suggesting it. I have thankfully been able to develop this style over the last few years. Of course I wouldn’t have been able to do this if I had used ink.

Love this, Barry. Minimum detail, but says everything.

Very nice it is too Barry

Like your figures and the sunshine look, Barry

No Barry, your way is best, you've created a bustling street scene with all the 'detail' necessary...it's a knack I don't have. Although his work is very different to yours, I like Seth's cityscapes for the same reason.

Thank you Cesare.

Hope I did it justice Tony.

I love this, Barry.

Thank you Ellen.

I think I have mentioned on some other posts that every two weeks three other painters and myself meet in a local pub for a meal. Each time we meet one of the group sets a challenge usually a photo and we all produce a painting for the next time we meet. This painting was based on a photo from our friend Chris of a Cambridge Street . My original plan was to produce an ink and wash and for a change I decided to put my initial washes on before any ink work, however I got carried away and it has ended up as a watercolour.
