Issue Cover

Leisure Painter  |  January 2012  

Welcome to the first issue of 2012. Leisure Painter has a host of new series starting this month. For all you coloured pencil enthusiasts, we look at different elements of still life drawing with a focus on depicting glass. We also begin an in depth study into painting seascapes, and another on the business of setting up and running a successful art club. Our on going Let's Start with Art watercolour series presents a wet in wet sunset. We cover all the main media (with a few surprises along the way) so whether you're a beginner or just in need of some inspiration, Leisure Painter is sure to help you progress quickly.

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.
