Issue Cover

Leisure Painter  |  Sep-15  


Welcome to the September issue of Leisure Painter. This month we feature a back to basics article focusing on the techniques and colours used to paint seascapes in watercolour. Then continue to practise your wet-in-wet, wet-on-dry and dry-brush techniques to paint a portrait of a dog, and read further watercolour advice on how to choose your palette. Learn how to paint figures using acrylic ink backgrounds with over layers of heavy body acrylics, and there's more acrylic colour mixing advice, this month looking at violet with a step by step demonstration of flowers. For the pastellists among you, we have buildings and landscapes, and for the oil painters a study of a garden flower and an exotic beach scene. Brush up your drawing skills with water-soluble graphite and Inktense, detailed pen & ink studies and how to draw caricatures. Finally, we have great pleasure in presenting the winning paintings from this year's open competition. We hope you enjoy the issue.

Leisure Painter magazine was founded in 1967 and is the UK's most popular art and painting magazine that is published 12 times a year. The award-winning company was created to assist amateur artists of all levels and cover all aspects of painting and drawing including pencils, acrylics, charcoals, oil paints, pastels and watercolours. Not only does Leisure Painter cover a range of materials, but also a huge variety of topics are covered too, including flowers, landscapes, buildings, animals, boats and portraits.


With Leisure Painter magazine, you can gain access to an online community of like-minded artists who share their top tips and advice on how to develop your skills, as well as enter regular competitions including David Bellamy's sketchbook challenge. Plus, you can pour over the exhibition and art events pages to find opportunities to dive further into your hobby with other enthusiasts.


Try your hand at one of the Leisure Painter’s painting projects - for example, “how to capture the character of an old building using watercolours” or “step-by-step guides on how to complete your drawing of distant mountains with charcoal”. Regular projects from our regular contributors are a great way to expand your artistic skill set.
