Charlotte Halliday St. Pauls from Peter’s Hill, water colour and body colour, 151⁄2x11in. (39.5x28cm)

London Seen

Charlotte Halliday has been drawing aspects of London for over 50 years and this retrospective exhibition at the Bankside Gallery, London (5 to 29 July) brings together a collection of work that reveals her on-going obsession with both classical and domestic London. “The changing light on architecture excites me,” she says. “I cruise the streets in my car until something catches my eye and I settle down to paint, typically on Turner’s blue Ingres paper, my tiny Winsor & Newton watercolour box on my left thumb. I have Radio 3 or Radio 4 for company; cricket in the summer, rugby in the winter.” Telephone 020 7928 7521.

About Leisure Painter

Welcome to the summer issue of Leisure Painter. We've packed this issue with a variety of painting tutorials and demonstrations for landscapes, portraits, birds, nocturnes, harbour scenes, flowers and gardens. If you love painting detail in watercolour, look no further than Paul Hopkinson's portrait of a barn owl and Jarnie Godwin's beginners' guide to botanical painting. If you want to simplify the detail, look out for Paul Alcock's painting project of a busy harbour scene and Hazel Soan's watercolour portraits. From tips on work outdoors to how to paint successfully from photographs, there's something for all busy amateur painters in this month's issue. You'll find practical advice on how to use watercolour pencils and other drawing media, watercolour, acrylics and oils along with where to go and what to do throughout the summer. Enjoy your month of painting!
