As we look forward to a new year of creativity, we’re pleased to announce full details about our TALP 2019 Open competition, with more than 40 individual prizes worth over£17,000 to be won (see pages 12-13). These include the prestigious The Artist Purchase Prize Award for a work up to the value of £5,000, selected by our guest judge and well-known TV presenter Lachlan Goudie ROI, as well as the chance to exhibit in The Artist’s Collection exhibition at Patchings Art Centre, plus a year’s representation for one lucky artist by The Harbour Art Gallery in Cornwall, owned and managed by Mark David Hatwood. Mark enjoyed meeting the winner of his 2018 award, John Hopkins, recently in Portscatho where the gallery is based, and both were pleased to record subsequent sales of John’s work – a winning partnership. Mark is passionate about supporting and promoting up-and-coming artists and we are happy to welcome him back to our pages with the start of his new series, packed with advice on strategies for marketing and selling your work, on page 78 of this issue.

About The Artist

Welcome to the first issue of 2019 to inspire and inform your artistic development, including all the information you will need to plan your entries to the best open competitions throughout the year in our extensive 5-page guide. We also see the start of two new series, by Ruth Buchanan on how to draw and paint animals with confidence, and Mark David Hatwood on all aspects of marketing and how to make money from your artwork. There are practical articles and demonstrations showing you how to adapt your painting techniques for coloured pencil work, with amazing results, how to paint a self-portrait as well as a stunning faded rose, both in watercolour, and how to make your watercolours more dynamic by using watercolour grounds. Our top artist contributors also share their expertise on best practice for working on the spot, how to plan a complex composition, paint your first realist still life in acrylic, use your sketchbooks to work out your ideas, how to paint successfully from your photos and which colours to mix in oils to achieve a sense of space in your landscapes. With all this and much more, there's plenty to keep you drawing and painting over the festive period. Enjoy!
