Leisure Painter publishes a wide range of inspiring and practical tutorials and projects for the beginner and amateur painter each month, from step-by-step demonstrations from photographs to illustrated techniques, practical tips and ideas for making the most of your favourite hobby, and plenty of inspiration to pick up your brush and try for yourself. This month: how to paint landscapes in different styles using watercolour, acrylics, oils and pastels. There are ideas for portrait painting and 5-minute sketching exercises. If you're new to watercolour painting, you'll need David Webb's step-by-step tutorial on how to stretch paper.
