Welcome from the editor

When it comes to painting, do we challenge ourselves enough? Do we use the same colours while painting the same subjects with the same medium, or embrace the creative people we are and make changes? This month’s issue is packed full of exercises, prompts, ideas and inspiration to take you down new avenues. I’m delighted that Tim Fisher begins his latest series for LP (pages 12 to 15), demonstrating how he uses his favourite colours. As you would expect from Tim, his chosen colour for part 1, cobalt teal, is not the usual fare, but adds a terrific punch to a painting when used on its own, and mixes to create subtle and exciting colour variations. Tim will discuss six of his favourite colours in different media over the coming months and it’s hoped that you will find them useful in your own paintings.
