As the Sun Goes Down


Lovely work Barry, the sunlit houses attract the eye.

Beautiful scene, skillfully and effortlessly painted.

Super Barry, great sunlight

Love the sun light on the building.

Quite stunning!!

Beautiful painting

A smasher Barry, I particularly the warmth and light coming through

Thank you Stephen, Harman, David, Judith, David, Faye and Heather for your lovely supportive comments.

Great use of watercolour and the light and tones are perfect Barry.

Another of you excellent French Collection, and another excellent painting Barry.

Great work Barry, watercolour at its best. I can see your influences shining through your work.

Wonderful sunshine.

Thank you Shaun, Paul, Bryan, Sarah and Stephen. I find it much easier to paint full sunshine and shadows and so I am particularly pleased that I managed to get the evening light to work in this one.

Superb subtle, sunset, shades on the buildings and such lovely, loose brushstrokes. This is outstanding.

Lovely evening light Barry, a charming and atmospheric watercolour.

A truly professional watercolour - so far as is humanly possible for anyone, you have complete control of the medium: a brilliant mix of dry-brush and wet-in-wet, foliage working wonderfully well, solid, believable buildings, discreetly placed car, lovely subdued light. And a lot better than a photograph for bringing your French holiday back to you in years to come.

Very good, like the light effect

Quality work Barry ticks all the boxes and more.

Beautifully painted, Barry

Excellent painting Barry,

Beautiful evening light against the dark shadowed trees - lovely!

Thank you Carole, Hilary, Stevan, Robert, Chris, Maureen, David and Anne. Robert you are absolutely correct this will be a lasting memory of that moment which says far more than a photograph.

A delight Barry love it.

That's beautiful, Barry

Thank you Carole and Thalia.
