Issue Cover

The Artist  |  August 2012  


This month's practical features to help artists develop their skills and techniques include: ways to paint flowers in watercolour; how to select your colours; test reports on the latest pastels and pastel pencils; approaches to composition for better portraits; paint your own holiday postcards; sketching tips; how to choose the best support for your pastel work; why it's a good idea to paint landscapes in water-mixable oils, and more. We interview professional artist Charlotte Sorapure, and tempera painter Peter Messer about the benefits of working in his chosen medium, report on the ING Discerning Eye exhibition, and discuss the growing internet trend of 'A Painting a Day', which is helping artists to market their work and make money without the help of galleries. All the latest news, views, competitions to enter, and information about books, workshops and art holidays is also included to keep you up to date with everything you need to know
