A Day in Paris

A Day in Paris

You always capture the mood and atmosphere in your paintings, Barry. Another beauty.

Thank you Seth, that is my aim as I feel if you don’t capture a feeling of the place you had just as well take a photograph.

Lovely scene Barry. Tones are great and the splashes of colour bring the city to life. Your people are brilliant.. so believable.

Well captured, Barry.

This is another winner Barry. Everything looks right about it and I love the band of red to add interest.

Wonderful - great style, Barry

Thank you very much Thalia, if it shouts Paris at you even after an absence that’s good enough for me.

Thank you Maureen.

Marvellous scene of my beloved Paris which was my home for many years.

A compliment indeed from someone who lived in Paris thank you very much Satu

Thank you Gudrun.
