The Artist  |  December 20  


As we move into the shorter, darker days of the UK winter and more restrictions on what we can do and where we can go, escape into the creative world of drawing and painting and be inspired to try new subjects, materials and techniques by this month's artist-contributors. Adebanji Alade shows how to paint lively street scenes from your photographs, Kathy Barker demonstrates how to paint a self-portrait in oils, paint your pet in acrylics with guidance from Paul Talbot-Greaves; or why not try line and wash techniques with Milly England, or combining coloured pencil and watercolour to create a still life with Liz Seward. Improve your landscape painting in watercolour with advice on how to achieve aerial perspective, how to paint great skies and how to select a good subject for a successful composition. Try painting the night sky in oils with Becky Thorley-Fox, and see Sarah Edmonds' timely advice on how to create and post videos online to help promote your work. Plus there's so much more to enjoy and be inspired by in this month's issue - enjoy!
