Issue Cover

The Artist  |  Summer 20  


Welcome to another lockdown issue of The Artist, during which creativity and community spirit are helping us all to cope with these far from normal times. With this in mind we are grateful to Adebanji Alade for sharing his demonstration portraits of Captain Sir Tom Moore, and NHS hero, as well as Ann Witheridge for her suggestions on how to keep creative and carry on during the restrictions. Plus, be inspired to paint seabirds on the seashore from a photograph, in acrylics; capture moving figures in watercolour; choose and mix the best colours for summer watercolour landscapes and paint a bright mixed-media flower composition with Soraya French. Or, follow Peter Nance and capture light-filled harbour scenes; explore long-format supports to create more interesting compositions; try new techniques using pen, line & wash; learn spatial approaches to drawing the figure; join Barry Herniman on his painting journeys along quiet country lanes, and much more. There's a wealth of ideas, media, techniques and subject matter to try in this issue, so don't forget to let us know how you get on - we love to hear from you!
