The ‘Travelling Sketchbook ‘ is coming to the lovely Croatian island of Korcula. I have teamed up with Lynda at Slikmilina to bring you an exciting week of sketching exploration on this picturesque island. I will be painting mainly in line and watercolour but any medium is fine by me. The emphasis is on information gathering and I will be concentrating on getting students to produce loose and lively sketching rather than more laboured pieces.Its all about capturing the moment in your art and going home with a sketchbook full of memories.

Here are a few of my sketchbook paintings done on site.

I am a full time artist and have been painting landscapes and seascapes for many years. My favourite medium is watercolour, its immediacy and transparency is hard to beat and I never tire of watching the colours mix and mingle on the paper. Whenever I can I like to paint en plein air using sketchbooks to capture the sense of place in a quick and vibrant manner.

My sketchbooks are hardbound and contain quality watercolour paper so I am able to do full colour watercolour sketches without the buckling and bending you get with cartridge. There can be few things more challenging and exciting than painting and sketching in front of my chosen subjects. Whether I am in the heart of the country, perched on a coastal cliff or in the middle of a busy city taking in all the sights and sounds is a pure joy.

Landscapes are my first love but I am at home painting anything from portraits to steam locos. I travel extensively both home and abroad doing demonstrations and workshops to Art Clubs and Societies. I also arrange a variety of overseas painting holidays to some fascinating locations which include Andalucia, New England and Wyoming, Ireland, Italy and Croatia.

I am a regular contributer to the ARTIST magazine and have also held workshops and delivered demos for them.  My book Barry Herniman’s Travelling Sketchbook and my ‘Cloverleaf ‘Paintbox are available for sale.
