  • Hello Barry
    A few years ago I bought your beginner lessons and have since joined our Mornington Peninsula plein air painting group here in Victoria, Australia. I keep referring to your lessons, there is always something else to learn or remember.
    Thank you for this lovely video. I would love to come to Italy, but it is beyond my means. Will continue to be inspired by your art.
    Many thanks

    Gloria Shaw
