Issue Cover

Leisure Painter  |  August 2012  


Welcome to the August issue of Leisure Painter. This month's issue features watercolour articles on the glazing technique, painting water scenes and landscapes, and lots of colour-mixing ideas. Other subjects to inspire you include step-by-step acrylic flower painting, skies in oils, painting children in pastel, and an urban fox using pastel pencils. There are new product reports, too, on pastel pencils for portrait painters and newly reformulated watercolours. Enjoy the issue!

Leisure Painter magazine was founded in 1967 and is the UK's most popular art and painting magazine that is published 12 times a year. The award-winning company was created to assist amateur artists of all levels and cover all aspects of painting and drawing including pencils, acrylics, charcoals, oil paints, pastels and watercolours. Not only does Leisure Painter cover a range of materials, but also a huge variety of topics are covered too, including flowers, landscapes, buildings, animals, boats and portraits.


With Leisure Painter magazine, you can gain access to an online community of like-minded artists who share their top tips and advice on how to develop your skills, as well as enter regular competitions including David Bellamy's sketchbook challenge. Plus, you can pour over the exhibition and art events pages to find opportunities to dive further into your hobby with other enthusiasts.


Try your hand at one of the Leisure Painter’s painting projects - for example, “how to capture the character of an old building using watercolours” or “step-by-step guides on how to complete your drawing of distant mountains with charcoal”. Regular projects from our regular contributors are a great way to expand your artistic skill set.
