Welcome from the editor

What better time to head to the great outdoors with your favourite art materials than during the height of summer? In this month’s issue we celebrate the Great British summer with a range of tutorials and demonstrations to help build confidence and skills as you prepare for sketching and painting outdoors and from life. If you’re new to painting in public and hesitating about taking the first step, try to go out with a friend, or simply take a small sketchbook and pencil, and sit somewhere quietly to draw what’s around you. Painting en plein air doesn’t have to include easels or pochades – not until you’re ready, that is!

About Leisure Painter

Welcome to the August issue of Leisure Painter, catering for beginners and amateur painters. This month we invite you to join our 31-day sketchbook challenge and enter your favourite three images on our online competition. There is more advice on how to fill your sketchbook from Ann Mortimer as she finishes her seasonal series on maintaining a garden journal, and Tony Underhill uses urban-sketching techniques to produce loose and lively line and wash sketches from photographs. We begin a three-part series on painting a stunning blue-eyed cat in watercolour, with tips and techniques on how to paint fur and eyes in all their detail. There are demonstrations for painting buildings and their reflections, a garden scene, boats and even a gorgeous old-fashioned teddy. With practical advice on watercolour, oils, acrylics, oil pastels and gouache, we hope you enjoy your issue of Leisure Painter.
