Alice draws the line

Alice Savery encourages you to draw and paint every day – and consider using your studies for greetings cards, calendars, mugs and more

My sketching kit: an A6 hardbacked sketchbook by Seawhite of Brighton, a waterbrush, a UniPin pen No. 0.1 or 0.05 and a small old set of Rowney watercolours. I love to collect natural items found on walks, and often my sketching kit accompanies me, ready for use. Sometimes it’ll all be found in the trug!

Favourite watercolours In the top-left section, Cotman Payne’s grey and dioxazine purple share a space. The top right is Cotman permanent rose, which is ideal for dog roses, honeysuckle and campion petals. The turquoise to the left of the pink is a colour I love. The white I thought I’d use, but I don’t touch it at all. On the bottom left I’ve used Hooker’s dark green and second from the right on the bottom row is cadmium yellow. The burnt umber, ultramarine, sap green and medium yellow are all from WHSmith’s own range. I just top up any colour that runs low.

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.
