Inspirations and just A Bit of Bucks County…online

Light and Atmosphere


“Streaming Sunlight” by renowned Bucks County artist Ranulph Bye is a favorite, capturing the light and atmosphere of the work of watercolorist, landscape painter, author and teacher Ranulph Bye.



A recent “Sense of Place” Exhibit at the James A. Michener Art Museum featured the many unique subjects and Bye’s beautiful compositions of Bucks County places and things.

Bye was a long time Bucks County resident, often working on location, capturing City and Country views, Railroad Stations were a favorite theme, Houses, Farms, Fields, Barns, Country Roads, Streams and Ponds, 19th century period architecture, Historic Houses, and Area Inns. As the Artist himself said in a recorded interview, his work captures a feeling of light and atmosphere.
