Charles Williams’ musings: BEAUTY IN FRANCE

In Montreuil with my wife last year, l was interested to see that the local council had placed information plaques around their beautiful town. The plaques commemorate American artists from the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries who had spent time there, painting pleasant scenes in the impressionist manner they had learnt either at the Academies in Paris or in studies at the Slade. I was a little miffed that it was only American artists represented; I expect an American charity had paid for the plaques, but surely some English painters visited, or was the invasion of English aesthetes confined to recent years? Certainly the town seemed to echo with English voices discussing the extraordinary elegance of the place.

About The Artist

Welcome to an inspiration-packed issue with great demonstrations to follow in all media to help practise and develop your skills, from Paul Riley's focus on how to depict glass and reflections in watercolour, Chris Forsey's mixed-media demonstration of a light-filled Australian coastal scene to Rob Wareing's feature on painting skin tones and portraits in oils. With an insight into up-and-coming Richard Burger's approach to portraiture and Richard Pikesley's use of studio objects as tabletop still lifes, we also step into the shoes of professional artists to see what motivates them and how they approach their work. Young artist Marie Antoniou urges you to express yourself in acrylics with just one brush, Robert Dutton explains the rules of perspective while Paul Talbot-Greaves shows how to achieve depth in landscape compositions, Barry Herniman paints boats and harbours, and Liz Seward suggests the perfect antidote to painter's block by turning to collage. For help with colour mixing, Julie Collins turns our attention to the variety of whites available, and Catherine Strong tells us how to keep our greens clean and vibrant. Enjoy the issue and email your feedback and comments to us at theartistletters@tapc.co.uk We love to hear from you!
