He conveys the romance and the elegance, the scenery and the speed- all with breathtaking reality. Barry J Freeman has been an avid railway enthusiast since childhood, Barry's combined love of art and railways is reflected in the detailed paintings in which he now specializes. He works almost exclusively in oils and, on average, a picture takes at least two months to complete. His insistence upon accuracy means that a similar amount of time is spent on research on location and in his extensive library of books and photographs.
