Barry Hilton Original Oil on Canvas

Here we have a stunning Original Oil on canvas by Barry Hilton. This painting is arguably one of his best pieces and is offered reluctantly offered for sale. Barry Hilton is one of the UK’s most enduringly successful artists. His celebrated landscapes express emotion and atmosphere with the use of bold blocks of colour and dramatic textural juxtapositions, while his more muted harbour scenes have an understated but no less intense impact. The lyricism and beauty of his acclaimed artwork has brought him success all over the world; this was recently highlighted when an American publishing house requested permission to use one of his paintings on the front cover of a new book by celebrated poet Joyce Sutphen. Barry’s greatest sources of inspiration are the moorland, rivers and harbours around his home in the north of England. His smooth, finely painted skies contrast with the heavy impasto techniques of the land as it appears in his highly coloured foreground, and he can actually identify the moment at which his distinctive style was born. Over the years he has painted many memorable landscapes featuring what he calls his ‘moody’ skies. It is the atmosphere and the shading that he is interested in capturing. The work does not duplicate the actual colours of the landscape, but rather conveys the creative imagination of a genuine and artistic talent. This particular painting captures a beautiful English summer day with children playing on the edge of the beach. Please take a look at the photographs provided as they form part of the description.
