Welcome from the editor

If one theme jumps out of this month’s issue it is the benefits of learning how to loosen up and add more bravura to our artwork. When you are still learning techniques, it can be hard to let go, but if you stop believing that every drawing or painting you make needs to be a masterpiece and spend time experimenting and following exercises and prompts you’re more likely to relax, feel less likely to give up when your painting doesn’t go to plan, and simply enjoy the process more. Setting yourself limits is one way to overcome the propensity to add too much detail and can help build that all-important confidence. Try: setting a stopwatch for five, ten or 15 minutes and complete a painting in that time; restricting the number of brushstrokes you allow yourself to use on one painting; or picking just two or three colours.
