About Leisure Painter

Welcome to the November issue of Leisure Painter. Every month Leisure Painter is packed with practical advice, tutorials and demonstrations aimed at developing the skills and confidence of beginners and amateur painters. We begin this issue with David Bellamy , who talks about travelling and painting – and the inspiration behind some of his iconic scenes. There are painting projects in line and wash, watercolour, pastels, oils and acrylics, from landscapes and still lifes to flowers, animals, buildings and more. Pick up tips on developing successful compositions, working with essential brushes, colour mixing and painting sunsets, and be inspired to use your ideas for producing mugs, cards and and other practical items. Enjoy your month of painting with Leisure Painter.
