Passing Car
Oil on Board, 3.625 x 5 inches   I do love the sparkle on water when the sun is straight ahead of you. This painting was all about tone - that progression of darks to lights, judging that very pale backdrop of distant woods. As I always say in my demos, you...

Frosted Track
Oil on Board, 3.625 x 5 inches   I love painting Silver Birches - they're such beautiful trees, rather like the Aspens over the pond. Frost, too, is a delight to capture in paint - that lovely silvery green as if the grass is dusted with icing sugar!

time I drive to the gallery - have I ever mentioned that I have a
gallery, Peter Barker Fine Art? Glancing across the Welland Valley

Lyndon Avenue
  Oil on Board, 3.625 x 5 inches   I've painted this wonderful
avenue of Oaks many times, and never is it more majestic than in late
Autumn when the colours are simply awesome and the foliage produces
dancing, dappled spots of light on the road and verges.

 Oil on Board, 3.625 x 5 inches 'Sunset Sky over Rutland Water', oil 3.625 x 5 inches I felt it was
time to paint half-a-dozen Christmas-present-sized paintings, so here's
the first one out of the blocks. I've deliberately reduced the size of

Hay Bales near Preston
  Oil, 3.625 x 5 inches 'Hay Bales near Preston', Oil 3.625 x 5 inches I've been meaning to paint some bales for a while - just love the light effects on these roly-poly rolls - they have the most subtle tone and colour shifts. I aranged the bales into a pl...

Beech Fall
Oil on Board, 12 x 17 inches I painted this a couple of
years ago and have revisited it, adding some Fallow Deer for interest,
repainted the background and reframed it. Sometimes there's no reason
why a painting doesn't sell, and other times it's obvious...

St. James's Park
Oil, 9 x 12 inches Here's my two-hour effort from the magnificent British Plein Air
Painters' paint-out at St.James's Park back in October, where the entire park was
monopolised by artists, causing lots of passers by to have a chat and
wonder what was go...

River Brathay in Little Langdale
Oil on board, 10 x 14 inches The beauty of the Lake District is astounding, and I'm asking myself why I haven't painted it more. I guess because I live in middle England, but I can feel another trip coming on... I painted this from a reference photo taken a...
