Creative Flow workshop Lecropt Kirk Hall, Bridge of Allan, Saturday 22 February 2020


Our day is about letting materials flow, mixing and texture and colour, allowing the magic to unfold without a desired outcome.  When we allow this to happen, images can rise from the paint.

It’s a powerful way to create.

There is no outcome to achieve, if any goal does exists, it’s seeing just how much we can let go of expectation and judgement.  Paint as if the outcome doesn’t matter to you.  Come and mix materials – acrylic,  ink, pastel and more, and see what happens.  You will be amazed what happens.  If you believe you are rubbish at art and not in the least bit creative then this is the workshop for you.

All materials provided. £90

St Modan’s High School, Stirling

There’s a wonderfully energetic art department at this Stirling school and for a couple of months now, the Advanced Sixth year students have been paying for a day of my time.  I set up a still life arrangement and then work through a mixed media painting of it from the very first sketches to the last piece of oil paint, pastel, charcoal and ink mark.  They get to witness first hand a painting emerge from scratch with all the drips, scratches, crises and triumphs.  And even if they do not choose to work on the still life arrangement themselves, the principles of internal struggles, composition, media, doubts and triumphs are common to all of us.

It’s such fun and so stimulating that although I’m paid for one day I usually end up staying for three!


Stirling Castle ‘River, Town, Castle and Kirk’ exhibition

Currently for sale in Stirling Castle’s Unicorn Cafe is a wide selection of mixed media contemporary Scottish paintings by Stirling artist Iona Leishman.  The show reflects the land and townscapes of Stirling and the River Forth.

Iona was Historic Environment Scotland’s first artist in residence at Stirling Castle and has exhibited consistently there since 2011.  Her knowledge and feeling for the castle and its human history is expressed through her vividly-imagined historical paintings.

Opening times: Every day 9.30am to 5pm, last entry 4.15pm.  Free with castle entry ticket.
