A Time Line Through Colour, with Leonie Gibbs … Walking with Bonnard, Matisse, Fergusson and Earl Haig 15/16 September

September 15, 2020 - September 16, 2020


15 – 16  September,  9.15 am – 4.0 pm daily.


Join us for a two day painting course in the gallery with renowned Scottish artist and sculptor Leonie Gibbs. www.leoniegibbs.co.uk.

This is an adventure into the world of colour, looking at four artists who have most inspired Leonie.  Over two days, Leonie will guide students through the techniques of oil painting, liberating inhibitions to produce creative and exciting results.  The focus will be on  learning to scupt  with paint, putting one colour against another to  create a three dimensional form.  Through the joy of discovering painting in this way people will find new avenues.  The course will be studio based but weather permitting students can venture into the garden to explore colours found in sunlight and shadow.  All levels of experience welcome using oils or acrylics.

Leonie lives in the Scottish Highlands and trained at Wimbledon and Edinburgh Art Schools. Her work continues the traditions of the Scottish colourists. In her  recent paintings she has been ‘exploring the intensity of the pigments, putting crimson alizarin next to cadmium red. Then surrounding the brights with earth colour. It’s rather like mixing people at a party and seeing the chemical reaction. ‘ The journey of paint is exhilarating, I have to be brave enough to face the challenges and deal with them.  Some times out whiting myself, keeping it lively  and fun  with an element of mystery.’
