Ter­ri­fied be­gin­ners try wa­ter­colour course

The Arran Banner - - Front Page -

Mem­bers of Ar­ran Visual Arts, who host art work­shops for mem­bers through­out the year, re­cently wel­comed wa­ter­colour artist Sheena Phillips back to Ar­ran for a course called: Wa­ter­colour for the ter­ri­fied be­gin­ner.

Sheena Phillips from Hadding­ton is a land­scape and por­trait painter us­ing wa­ter­colour, acrylic oil and pas­tel and has tu­tored artists on Ar­ran dur­ing pre­vi­ous vis­its. The two-day course started with some loos­en­ing up ex­er­cises be­fore sim­ple land­scapes were pro­duced us­ing tones of one colour, then dif­fer­ent colours us­ing wet-on-wet tech­niques. Sun­day saw the use of masking fluid, paint­ing flow­ers and us­ing trac­ing.

Feed­back re­ceived at the end of the course was over­whelm­ingly pos­i­tive with all of the at­ten­dees feel­ing that the course was not only use­ful but en­joy­able.

At­tend­ing the work­shop were, from left, Mau­reen McKenna, Heather Rae­side, Vicki Rigby with tu­tor Sheena Phillips.
