A selection of paintings by Sheena Christie
Sheena has long admired the work of the Impressionists, Paul Cézanne and The Group of Seven. Her work reflects their influences and those of the Scottish Colourists who, like her, were inspired by the wonderful light & colours of the unspoilt West Coast and islands of Scotland.
Always fascinated by the effect of our constantly changing weather and sky, her passion lies in the extremes of light & colour in the landscape. The sky often dominates her work, the form and movement of clouds being expressed with bold brushstrokes.
Sheena typically uses acrylics in her work but also likes to introduce subtle mixed media to invite the viewer to ponder the landscape and see it as more than just a picture.
