Syd Barrett - acrylic, by Eric Watson Syd Barrett - watercolour, by Eric Watson

These two portraits of Syd Barrett are by This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it , who lives in the UK. Eric isn't a commercial artist, but a big Syd/Floyd fan who wanted to turn his artistic talents to representations of Syd.

He tells us: "[They are] a watercolour and an acrylic; they are not brilliant photographs, my camera isn't so good, but hopefully you will get the idea."

The acrylic is an interesting take on a classic Barrett shot (most recently, and prominently, used on the cover of the Pink Floyd & Syd Barrett Story DVD) which uses graduated dots to make up the image. The other portrait takes a completely different approach, with a delicate touch in watercolour drawing out a soulful look from Barrett.

As with the other pictures in the gallery, please click the thumbnails for the full image.
