About Leisure Painter

Welcome to the December issue of Leisure Painter. Aimed at beginners and amateur painters, this issue is packed with demonstrations, practical advice and tutorials on painting landscapes, still lifes, animals, flowers, portraits and nature studies in watercolour, oils, acrylics and gouache. There's everything from how to paint successfully from photographs and setting up a still life, to Christmas-themed ideas to paint and the difference between shade and tone (and how that difference can make your landscapes come alive!). You'll also find our annual index, news from the art clubs, special book offers, exhibitions to visit and more - all aimed at helping you enjoy your drawing and painting time this month.
