About The Artist

There's a definite seasonal theme in this month's issue as we say goodbye to the UK summer and our contributing artists turn to working with a more autumnal palette in watercolour (Ian Sidaway and cover artist Paul Talbot-Greaves), and pastel (David Allen), whilst Geoff Hunt shows how it's possible to paint watercolours in the rain. Mixed-media enthusiasts will love the demonstrations by Chris Forsey and Soraya French, who shows how to create exciting textures in acrylic landscapes, whilst Robert Dutton urges us to embrace our 'mistakes' as we develop our creativity. For more detailed painting styles, be inspired by Lucy McKie's intricate paintings, and Tim Gustard's photorealist approach to creating the illusion of glass objects. We also include articles on line and wash techniques, 16 invaluable tips from female members of the Royal Watercolour Society, advice on painting the sea and sky in watercolour, how to create a strong focal point, and develop a style of our own. Plus, study our additional 16-page Art Courses & Holidays supplement for great ideas for some personal art tuition in the UK or overseas!
