Paintings of Cardiff and Wales

Paintings of Wales by Barrie Short

I have recently been inspired to start painting my hometown Cardiff and country of birth, Wales. The paintings found here of Wales are produced using acrylic paint on canvas. The technique and style of my pieces are a most probably result of studying fine art at Cardiff university and thereafter graphic design at Reading college. The evolution of my painting style has, however, been competely organic and not forced in any way. The apparantly simple and childlike forms actually take some time to finish and are designed to reflect a cleanlisness in appearance yet also a childlike, almost innocent look.

I take great joy in painting my hometown of Cardiff and the paintings I produce of both Wales and Cardiff are available to purchase. Please contact me via email for details of shipping and prices
