Anita Barbour

5 Fishcreek Road

Studio #22

Most white-line woodblock prints (aka Provincetown prints) are composed of tightly controlled,within-the-lines applications of paint.  Anita Barbour’s are loose and juicy, with the watercolor paint filling many of the carved lines, and with loads of iridescent and gemstone pigments under, mixed into or washed over the regular colors.  She’ll show you how to do it!
