Medium: Oil, watercolor
Description: Impressionist landscapes in oil and watercolor
I paint with my heart, bringing the viewer with me on an exploration of essence and perception. I look at things anew, and am continuously studying to develop my skills, in composition, perception, and technical execution. I portray not only the image, but my impression, and the feeling or essence of the place. I aim to take the viewer with me on the journey, and share my appreciation of life.As an artist, Barbara pushes herself to try new techniques and styles. She enjoys the company of other artists and the critique that comes from studying with local artists as well as internationally acclaimed artists. Barbara paints in oils, watercolor and pastel, a variety of subjects, mainly representational, but prefers to add her own voice to the composition rather than painting a photo realism. She accepts commissions for pet portraits, and also for landscapes and homes, boats and gardens. Barbara’s art has won awards and has been chosen for International and regional as well as local shows, and she belongs to several prestigious art societies.
