Re: Paintings from Barry's Travels


I painted this immediately after a boat trip in the Gulf of Poets in Liguria, Italy. This is a little island just south of the Cinque Terre area. The composition was deliberately simply since my focus was to capture the brilliant shimmering cool colors in the water, contrasting with the brilliant sunshine on the cliffs. The warm late summer sky formed a neutral warm pink gray for the composition.

Re: Paintings from Barry's Travels

I thought Iíd do some plein air oil sketching while hiking in the Apuani mountains in Italy. Little did I know this was going to be one of the scariest painting trips Iíve ever done! But in the end the painting got done. Click the link to see some video of the experience.

If you are interested in acquiring one of my works, the painting (Cat. No. 1299 Monte Altissimo - 7.2cm x 9.2cm - Oil on Linen) is for sale by auction (click link). https://www.virtualartacademy.com/pr...nte-altissima/ Painting value $700. Starting bid $150.

Re: Paintings from Barry's Travels


In Morocco, the Marrakesh streets are very narrow and pedestrians have to contend with motorbikes on some of them. You soon learn to walk on the right, and if you donít the locals remind you so you donít get squashed!

Re: Paintings from Barry's Travels


This is very near the main souk (market) in Marrakesh, and is packed with tourists. The big problem with painting in these narrow streets is the fumes from the exhaust pipes of motorbikes. Eventually I had to leave Marrakesh and escape to the mountains because I was feeling that I was getting badly poisoned by the terrible air quality. The things we put up with in the name of our art!
See my video and some information on how I painted it:

Re: Paintings from Barry's Travels


The light on this street in Marrakesh was incredible. There seemed to be no way to capture it in paint. It is the shadows that seem so vibrant in color when you are actually there. There is no way to capture the effect in a photograph. Read about how I did the underpainting:

Re: Paintings from Barry's Travels

To paint loosely but still convey a feeling for your subject means you have to say a lot with just a few brushstrokes. Read my blog for some tips on how to do this.

Re: Paintings from Barry's Travels

Here is a small painting around 12 x 25 cm of the main square in Marrakesh. I spent a day at Jemaa El-Fna market with a very small painting setup based on a cigarette case for my oil paints and some tin pencil boxes with pieces of loose linen taped to the insides with masking tape.



In the video on my blog you can see the hustle and bustle of daily life.
