Colour & Nature
About Colour & Nature

Inspired by our exhibition The Colour Circle featuring the work of Bernat Klein, this one-day course will focus on exploring colour and its connection to nature. Using watercolours and pastels, we will look at how to mix colours, combinations of colour and tone and how they affect each other, developing these experiments into a pattern, painting or design.

No experience is necessary, just a willingness to dive in and explore the colours!

Sheena studied Fine Art Drawing & Painting at Glasgow School of Art, graduating with her BA (Hons) in 1997. She works as a professional artist from her studio at Trongate 103 and has exhibited her work in the UK, Europe and New York.
