Paddy’s Hole

So well worked great colours and technique Barry quality work as always

Accuracy is never an issue for me Barry, I'm looking for the ambience of the place and you have portrayed this with style.

Thanks Dennis your comments appreciated as always.

Nor for me Alan but I have had some comments in the past and so I decided to make things clear at the start. I am with you about ambience which is probably why I enjoy Plein air as it gives you the chance to experience a subject.

Lovely painting, I prefer some imagination rather than a photographic image Barry.

I think you have it spot on, I wouldn't have changed anything, as always a great painting 😃

Thank you Carole good to hear that others are on the same page.

Thank you Linda glad you like it🙂

Really interesting harbour scene, lots to see here.

Thank you Sandra, it probably has too much to see.

Very nicely painted Barry

Thank you David much appreciated.

It's great Barry, lots to look at in this lovely piece.

The scene is based around half a dozen photos and not a totally accurate rendition of the scene but I hope I have captured a flavour of it. I think I should have focused on one or two boats as I think this is too busy but enjoyed the process.

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…
