About Leisure Painter

Welcome to the December issue of Leisure Painter. We have a plethora of styles, media and ideas for you to follow this month. David Bellamy introduces his techniques for using watercolour pencils when sketching landscapes, and Hazel Soan completes her series on painting wildlife in watercolour with three exciting demonstrations, culminating in the lion's head you see on this month's front cover. Charles Evans offers a step-by-step demonstration of a snow scene, which is just perfect for a Christmas card, and Judith Milne gives ideas and inspiration for producing floral cards for this time of year. There is a tutorial on painting reflections in different types of water, good composition ideas and an array of tips, techniques, practical advice and demonstrations to inspire you. Enjoy your month of painting.
