Acrylic by Barbara Nolan
Acrylic on Canvas
Semi abstract depicting the atmosphere of a partly wooded valley on Dartmoor.
My background is in textiles and design. Since retiring I have returned to painting and for some time have concentrated on sea and landscapes, working in oil or acrylic.
I find myself moving more into abstract works where I can express my feelings and use the process of painting as a means of expression without the constraints of representational art.
My paintings are on the borders of representational and abstract art. Each painting develops in its own way without a plan. Colour and texture are important elements of my work.
