Close up,painting

Sheena will not be taking new students this term.    The class will look at different ways of drawing what you see and not what you think you see.  If you think colour mixing is a mystery then this is for you.  To begin with I will supply paint but please bring you own sketch paper and pencil.  Students wishing to join the class after the start term should have some  drawing experience.  Drawings will range form Matisse to Kandinsky.

Brought up in Ayrshire, Sheena gained her Diploma at Edinburgh College of Art. She was craftsman in residence in Linlithgow then worked as a furniture designer until she decided to return to painting with the move to Haddington. She tutors painting at the Poldrate Arts and Crafts Centre where she was past chairman. She also tutors for continuing Education. Her first love is landscape. She likes to prepare sketches and paintings on site. However she is happy to take commissions using photographs when necessary. Most of her work is commissioned, not only landscape but portraits and still life. Her work has been described as ‘atmospheric and evocative’, often showing the effect of light on water and land. She has had work accepted by the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour, Royal Scottish Society of Watercolours, Aberdeen Artists Society, The North Ayrshire Arts Council and The Discerning Eye, London. She has been commissioned by councils and many firms and individuals in Britain and abroad. Exhibitions: Broughton Gallery, Dirleton Gallery, Hanover Fine Arts, Peter Potter Gallery, Pitlochry Festival Theatre.
