Summer Dance by Barbel Smith

Summer Dance

15x22 on Primitive Linen

Barbel Smith takes her inspiration from the Canadian landscape much like the Group of Seven did, her style is reminiscent of Lawren Harris. 

I met Barbel on a studio tour and was immediately struck by the sweeping lines and bold colours that drew me into the paintings.
