About Us

Barry Herniman is a full time artist andlives in Ross on Wye, England. His first exhibition of watercolours was in 1991 and was predominantely of local Wye Valley scenes. Since then he has travelled quite extensively both home and abroad, constantly gathering reference material and inspiration for his paintings.

' I travel everywhere with my trusty sketchbook which is hardbound and contains Saunders Waterford HP paper which is superb for line and wash work. I have recently published my new book Barry Herniman's Travelling Sketchbook which has reproduced some of my best sketches from around the world.'

'During my years as a full time artist I have produced Practical painting books and DVD's and am also a regular article contributer to The Artist magazine. Although I have painted in many mediums I always come back to watercolours ... which were my first love. Nothing can quite match the excitement and wonder of wet washes fusing together on the paper.'

'My Painting Workshops and Holidays are very popular and have included A Cruise on the Nile, Fall Colours of New England and Ireland's Wild West Coast ! Check out my Blog on my website barryherniman.com'
