Barry won the Artist of the Year Award for the SAA in 2001 and the Harper Collins Award Patchings 2000.

The first thing I must comment on in this book is the artist's devotion to capturing the scene before him with such clarity that it could provoke strong emotions. The artist uses the term 'art from the heart' and I think this term is very apt to describe the whole book. Each of the artist's paintings provoked different emotions in me and I am sure this is the effect he desired. I was sceptical as to how I could achieve such amazing results, but I am proud to say that I did achieve them. I read the book from cover to cover and devoured every word. I savoured each individual painting and followed the projects to the letter. I really cannot commend this book enough; my paintings have now been infused with that something extra. There are so many techniques and useful information in this book I feel as if I have had personal tuition from the artist. Highly recommended!* minigallery.co.uk *
