About The Artist

Welcome to our August issue, packed with inspirational features to help you explore and enjoy your creative skills in all media this summer. Our professional artists and tutors show how to capture summer trees in acrylics, deal with all those greens in the landscape, choose and use the best pochade box for your needs and paint watercolour landscapes both near and far. There are also demonstrations on how to achieve a portrait likeness in charcoal, apply the 'robot' method for painting people, use the patterns of animal coats to help describe their form and capture a radiant sunset in oils. Our interview with Sunday Times Watercolour Competition winner Jayne Stokes provides an insight into the secrets of her success and her working methods in water-based media, while a group of artists reveal how they set up an Open Studios event and offer their top tips for success. There's plenty more, including the latest news, views, product review, competitions to enter and advice on how to create and publish your own book! Enjoy!
