The outdoor painter

As the Impressionists proved, there’s nothing quite like painting direct from nature for creating lively and spontaneous work. It’s the serendipity of the process that gives it that spark. Drawing on years of experience, well-respected tutor and artist, M. Stephen Doherty, has brought together the best plein-air methods and tools in The Art of Plein Air Painting. Working within a time limit, rationing supplies, dealing with sudden changes in the weather and simplifying the scene before you, are just some of the subjects he covers. Throughout, there are examples from many of the world’s best plein-air artists, such as Manet and Singer Sargent, together with interviews from contemporary masters. There’s plenty of resource material too, with information on plein air and quick draw events. For anyone wanting to build the courage to get out there and start painting, this book is a must.

About Leisure Painter

Welcome to the October issue of Leisure Painter (now 80 pages PLUS this month's 16-page art courses and holidays supplement). Aimed at beginners, less-experienced amateurs and hobby painters, LP is the best-selling practical art magazine in the UK. Inside you'll find practical advice, exercises and demonstrations on how to paint with watercolour, acrylics, acrylic inks, oils, pastels and drawing media, as well as tackling mixed-media approaches. With everything from adding figures to your beach scenes to gardens, flowers, animals, still lifes and landscapes, we aim to fill your painting hours. There's even a challenge to complete a miniature medieval initial letter in gold this month. Then sit back and view the award-winners of this year's Leisure Painter Open Competition, and read news on exhibitions, diary events, art club activities, the latest practical art books and our online home, PaintersOnline. The final 16 pages of this month's issue will help you plan your next art course. Enjoy the issue!
