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.
