Experiment and Create in Watercolour

Experiment and Create in Watercolour with Sheena Phillips

Friday 10am-12noon.

Sheena is well known for her watercolour paintings both traditional and abstracted. She has exhibited widely in the UK and Italy.

Sheena’s class will run on a Friday morning from 10am – 12 noon 

Materials are not included in the cost of the class. Please bring your own paints, brushes and paper and any other materials that you might have. Advice and purchase of materials can be provided by Sheena. 

The aim – you will experiment to develop your own style with Sheena’s guidance and to appreciate and enjoy the process. We will continue to refresh our knowledge with watercolour techniques, tonal values, and colour exploration.

During the term you will have opportunity to use a variety of materials which she will introduce to you.

And finally you are reminded to be kind to yourself and do what makes you happy.

Examples of student works

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. 

Her first love is landscape. She likes to prepare sketches and paintings on site. Her work has been described as ‘atmospheric and evocative, often showing the effect of light on water and land.
