About Leisure Painter

Welcome to the May issue of Leisure Painter, packed with practical tutorials, step-by-step demonstrations and illustrated techniques - all designed to help the beginner and amateur to draw and paint successfully. There's something for everyone, from how to paint spring flowers, landscapes, boats and animals in watercolour to tutorials using coloured pencils, water-soluble pencils, oils, pastels, acrylics and tinted charcoal. Learn how to manipulate photographs on a computer to help you compose a better picture, take your first steps with scratchboard, and discover how to gather reference material from nature. There's a look at the joys of taking part in outdoor painting competitions, even if you are a beginner, and David Bellamy introduces part two of our sketchbook challenge. There is also a host of information about art events and exhibitions, art club activities and reviews of practical art books, as well as news, special offers, competitions, holidays and workshops to enjoy.
