This month Steve Hall recreates the watercolour working methods of past master Edward Wesson, to inspire artists in the journey towards their own style. Contemporary watercolour expert Hazel Soan advises on how to mix and use clean blacks; Ann Blockley shows how she creates order out of chaos in her watercolour and mixed-media compositions, whilst Paul Talbot-Greaves continues his series on how to improve your watercolour techniques. Coloured pencils are the preferred choice of Graham Brace, who demonstrates why they have come of age as a serious artist's medium. Other practical features include our report on Golden Grounds and how to use them to best effect, how to loosen up, and advice on working with a triad of selected colours. Our masterclass with award-winning David Statter focuses on the importance of light and pattern in successful compositions; we also interview Paul Trevillion about his drawings of sportspeople for national newspapers. Jenny Halstead talks about the challenges of being an artist in residence, whilst Maggie Brown offers advice to first-time exhibitors. Plus, there's much, much more to inspire and inform artists, whatever their level of experience!
