Barry Peckham ROI, SEA, PS - Born 1945

Barry Peckham is proving to be a worthy successor to a notable line of New Forest painters. He seems to have taken the strengths of these artists and used them to build his own style and character. Characteristics such as confident brushstrokes, hazy backgrounds and powerful skies combined with his understanding of horse movement and their anatomy can all be seen in Peckham's work.

Many equestrian painters paint more portrait style pictures but Peckham's are complete pictures with subject, background and foreground which are all given equal care and attention.

Peckham's marine paintings which include 'HMS Warrior entering Portsmouth Harbour' and 'The Royal Yacht Britannia' and 'Valsheda at Cowes Week' show a great understanding of the wind, sea and sky making him worthy of his exhibits at the Royal Society of Marine Artists.

The majority of his work is associated with the New Forest and Solent shores but he seems equally at home, on his painting trips, with the big skies of Norfolk, the quay at St. Ives, Cornwall and the Yorkshire Dales to name a few. His C.V. illustrates he is doing all the right things to be remembered in the future and he is already noted in many reference books including 'Who's Who in Art'.
