Barbara Green is a Dorset Artist whose art uses a variety of paint mediums. Her bold colourful style uses the intense colours of the seasons, inspired by her beloved Dorset countryside and her love of nature.
Acrylic is a type of paint which dries more quickly than oil. It can be diluted with water but is water resistant when dry. The quick drying nature of acrylic makes it ideal for over-painting. Barbara also paints in other mediums such as Acrylics, does Etchings, Giclee Prints and Collagraphs.

Oil paint is made from pigment bonded with oil, such as linseed oil, walnut oil or poppy seed oil. Oil paint can be used thick or can be thinned with turpentine making it a very versatile paint medium. The ground for oil painting is usually linen or cotton canvas which has been sized and coated with primer.
