Margaret Walty Epiphyllums, acrylic on board, 161⁄2*231⁄2in (42*59.5cm)

The Shapes of Nature is the third annual exhibition by members of The Scottish Society of Botanical Artists. Formed in 2014 by a group of enthusiastic botanical artists, this relatively new group aims to provide a forum through which it can share knowledge and expertise, whilst also giving a platform for botanical art in Scotland. Regular drop-in painting days are held, usually on the second Wednesday of the month at The Scottish Arts Club, 24 Rutland Square, Edinburgh, from 10.30am to 4pm and the group also organises a series of free talks. Look out for Sharon Bradley’s free talk on Curtis Botanical Magazine on November 8 (2 to 4pm) at The Botanic Cottage, Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh. Full details of all events and how to join are available from the society’s website at www.thessba.org

The purpose-built Lillie Gallery, hosting The Shapes of Nature exhibition, was opened in 1962 and houses a collection of Scottish art, including work by the Scottish Colourists: Peploe, Hunter, Cadell and Fergusson, as well as pieces by Joan Eardley and Elizabeth Blackadder. Between 40 and 50 works by the Scottish Society of Botanical Artists will be on show and the exhibition runs concurrently with the annual exhibition by the Glasgow Society of Women Artists; www.gswa.org.uk

About The Artist

There's a definite seasonal theme in this month's issue as we say goodbye to the UK summer and our contributing artists turn to working with a more autumnal palette in watercolour (Ian Sidaway and cover artist Paul Talbot-Greaves), and pastel (David Allen), whilst Geoff Hunt shows how it's possible to paint watercolours in the rain. Mixed-media enthusiasts will love the demonstrations by Chris Forsey and Soraya French, who shows how to create exciting textures in acrylic landscapes, whilst Robert Dutton urges us to embrace our 'mistakes' as we develop our creativity. For more detailed painting styles, be inspired by Lucy McKie's intricate paintings, and Tim Gustard's photorealist approach to creating the illusion of glass objects. We also include articles on line and wash techniques, 16 invaluable tips from female members of the Royal Watercolour Society, advice on painting the sea and sky in watercolour, how to create a strong focal point, and develop a style of our own. Plus, study our additional 16-page Art Courses & Holidays supplement for great ideas for some personal art tuition in the UK or overseas!
