Tips for painting water

A Swan Passing By, gouache, 113⁄4x93⁄4in. (30x25cm). Think about the tones beneath the water, and not just the surface. Remember the rocks will cast shadows as well as reflections.
Sailing Boats, Lake Garda, gouache, 113⁄4x93⁄4in. (30x25cm). Don’t become too worried about detail. Try to focus on capturing the atmosphere, and the feeling of heat and light bouncing from one surface to another.

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.
