Welcome from the editor

Anew year with Leisure Painter inevitably brings with it a major new series of practical tutorials. To begin 2018 I have great pleasure in introducing a year-long look at ‘watercolour basics and beyond’ with David Webb (pages 14 to 17). We begin the series this month with an introduction to materials and your first technique, the flat wash. In the next issue, David covers how and when to stretch your paper, followed throughout the year by a detailed study of painting and sketching in watercolour, all aimed at building your skill set and confidence with this wonderful and unpredictable medium. As always, I hope you have fun with your experiments, and enjoy the process of learning and painting.

About Leisure Painter

Welcome to a new year of painting with Leisure Painter. We begin this month's tutorials with David Webb's new year-long series, Watercolour basics and beyond, where he takes you through essential watercolour techniques. This month, David discusses basic equipment and the first of the techniques: the wash. For all those who want a back-to-basics approach to drawing and painting, we have step-by-step demonstrations, illustrated techniques and practical advice in watercolour, acrylics and oils as well as drawing media. For those with more experience, you will find plenty of inspiration and practical instruction for painting portraits, landscapes, animals, still lifes, abstracts, a market scene and more. We're here to help you make the most of your favourite hobby.
