Issue Cover

Leisure Painter  |  February 2012  


Whether you're a beginner in watercolour painting or want to learn more advanced acrylic techniques, this month's issue offers something for everyone. Watercolour tuition includes a focus on dry-brush technique, painting a snow scene, easy methods of depicting buildings and figures, and a new colour-mixing series. We continue our coloured pencil still-life series with step-by-step demonstrations, and cover acrylic portraits, landscapes, birds and flowers! There are also confidence-building articles on drawing techniques, how to compose a successful painting, an in-depth look at painting seascapes in oils - and a reader's question answered on paper choice. Enjoy the issue!

Leisure Painter magazine was founded in 1967 and is the UK's most popular art and painting magazine that is published 12 times a year. The award-winning company was created to assist amateur artists of all levels and cover all aspects of painting and drawing including pencils, acrylics, charcoals, oil paints, pastels and watercolours. Not only does Leisure Painter cover a range of materials, but also a huge variety of topics are covered too, including flowers, landscapes, buildings, animals, boats and portraits.


With Leisure Painter magazine, you can gain access to an online community of like-minded artists who share their top tips and advice on how to develop your skills, as well as enter regular competitions including David Bellamy's sketchbook challenge. Plus, you can pour over the exhibition and art events pages to find opportunities to dive further into your hobby with other enthusiasts.


Try your hand at one of the Leisure Painter’s painting projects - for example, “how to capture the character of an old building using watercolours” or “step-by-step guides on how to complete your drawing of distant mountains with charcoal”. Regular projects from our regular contributors are a great way to expand your artistic skill set.

I just love having my art magazines on line as this has saved space by not storing hard copies.
I thought I would miss holding a magazine to read but actually it is much better as
1. I can enlarge the digital pictures
2. I can more easily go back to earlier editions when there are a series of painting lesson over several months.
Thank you x Reviewed 15 May 2020
