About The Artist

Welcome to the summer issue of The Artist packed with articles by top professional artists and tutors to inspire, inform and help develop your technical and creative skills in all media. This month James Bartholomew discusses how he seeks to create more dynamic paintings using mixed-media techniques. Watercolourists will enjoy Aine Divine's demonstration showing how to paint a side profile portrait and Trevor Waugh's focus on how to capture flowers quickly using lost-and-found edge techniques. John Threlfall explains why pastels are ideal for capturing wildlife subjects and working in the field. There are also demonstrations and practical articles on how to add interest to your landscape foregrounds, capture a seasonal field of rapeseed, paint realistic-looking strawberries in acrylics and how to select the right colours and paint big summer skies. Plus we include articles on painting self-portraits, keeping a sketchbook , working on handmade linen boards, how to protect your work online, what you can and can't do about copyright issues, and more.
