Barbara Green is a Dorset Artist whose love of Dorset greatly influences her paintings. Barbara’s oil paintings show how the intense colours of the seasons, the hues of light, the local people and their stories inspire her artwork. 

Oil paint is made from pigment bonded with oil, usually linseed oil. It can be thinned with turpentine. The ground for oil painting is usually linen or cotton canvas which has been sized and coated with primer. She also paints in Acrylics, does Etchings, Giclee Prints and Collagraphs.

Acrylics Gallery

Made from an acrylic polymer, acrylic paint when wet is water soluble. But when dry it becomes water resistant so many layers of paint can be added to its surface. Making it one of the most versatile mediums.

Collagraphs Gallery

This is a printmaking process where materials are applied to a rigid thick card. Textured paper, string, tissue paper and grit can also be used. The process is repeated for each new print, maybe with different colours. Each print is a unique original piece of work.

Etching Gallery

Dry point etching is a technique that consists of scratching into the surface of a metal or perspex plate with a sharp point. Ink is then daubed onto the plate and then excess ink is carefully wiped away this process makes each print slightly variable and unique.
