Exhibition of Barr watercolours opens

SHONA Barr celebrates her 50th year with a major solo show of new paintings at Bohun Gallery.

SHONA Barr celebrates her 50th year with a major solo show of new paintings at Bohun Gallery.

The popular Scottish artist continues to explore Aberdeenshire and depicts dramatic landscapes, flora and fauna with characteristically daring colour combinations and broad, dynamic brushstrokes.

Her paintings will be on show at Bohun Gallery from tomorrow (Saturday) to June 6.

She begins with detailed watercolours painted ‘en plein air’, enabling her to absorb the atmosphere and catch the changing light, before in the studio the final painting becomes a distillation of the key elements, rather than describing it in detail.

The brushstrokes play with the boundaries where completely abstract marks come together as a recognisable image.



Shona has paintings in the permanent collections of Lillie Art Gallery, Prior’s Court School and Strathclyde University, and corporate and private collections worldwide.
