Montage of Barry Freeman's Paintings

It seems logical that, following on from the previous post, we continue with the Barry Freeman theme for today's post, 29 June 2019. The title of today's Gibsons' 1000-piece puzzle,  is Memories of Steam, a superb montage of nine of Barry's best paintings.  One of the paintings, Cities of Lancaster, was included in the previous post, as 500-piece puzzle.

The titles of the paintings are as follows (numbered 1 to 9, left to right,  top to bottom);

1 Memories of Sandown   2 The Haymarket Wanderer   3 Return To Base   4 Autumn Frosts

5 Living Legend   6 Midland Revival   7 Star Quality   8 Cities of Lancaster   9 Western Workhorse.

Nos 1, 2, 3, 7 and 9 can be seen, and are superbly described, in Barry's book - The Railway Paintings of Barry J. Freeman. 

Most of the above paintings have been reproduced as individual jigsaw puzzles and several can be viewed on the blog - just input Barry Freeman into the search bar and they will appear.
