Welcome

from the editor

It is with great pleasure that I present the award-winning work from Leisure Painter’s Open competition and exhibition 2019 (pages 64 to 69), which was held in the Pavilion Gallery at Patchings Art Centre from 11 July to 11 August. We saw an exceptionally interesting array of subject matter this year, and the winning paintings range from beautifully executed landscapes, cityscapes and portraits – animal and human – to depictions of a Moroccan tannery, a truck and a colourful allotment with pumpkins. What they all have in common, however, is a great sense of style, composition and colour. Professional artist, John Sprakes, who is also one of the competition judges, felt that more attention could have been paid to colour in the exhibited works overall and encouraged everyone who enters to paint en plein air as much as possible. As John points out, painting from life helps to increase our understanding of colour and ensures we really look at the subject we’re painting. Observation from life is key here.

About Leisure Painter

Welcome to the October issue of Leisure Painter. We have a plethora of tips and techniques, demonstrations and practical advice for watercolourists this month, from projects from photographs to how to paint contrast and drama, detail in a cat's face and flowers from life. We look at painting a figure of a child in pastel, a fox in autumn woodland in acrylics and a vignette of a church in gouache. There are beginner's guides to tonal values, painting with traditional and water-mixable oils and a look at painting with acrylic inks. We also have great pleasure in presenting the award-winning work from the Leisure Painter category of this year's TALP Open and your 16-page guide to inspirational painting holidays and courses, both in the UK and abroad. Enjoy your time painting with Leisure Painter.
