South Shields Museum at Home - colouring sheets
By South Tyneside's artist Sheila Graber
South Tyneside artist and teacher Sheila Graber has created colouring in sheets to download and enjoy at home inspired by well-known paintings. They are suitable for all generations!
The exhibition Sheila from Shields (and her cat) is planned for later this year. In keeping with Sheila’s passion for cats the images are all cat themed apart from one dog image.
Two of the images are taken from popular north east artist Ralph Hedley’s famous paintings in Newcastle’s Laing Art Gallery.
- Ralph Hedley's 'Blinking in the Sun' – download to print here. See the original version here.
- Ralph Hedley’s 'Last in Market' – download to print here. See the original painting here.
- Amau – a regal Egyptian cat. Download to print here. Adapted from the painting by Susan Herbert.
- Bubble Cat – download to print here. Adapted from the painting by Susan Herbert. The original image will be familiar to you from a Pears soap advert ‘Bubbles’ a painting by Sir John Everett Mills in 1886.
- Funflowers – adapted from Sunflowers by Vincent Van Gogh, 1888. Download to print here, and see the original painting here.
