Welcome from the editor

What is your biggest challenge when it comes to drawing and painting? I often hear from readers, who want to know why they produce dull or insipid colour mixes so I have great pleasure in including Claudia Myatt’s article ‘Keep off the mud’ in this month’s issue (pages 12 to 15). Although she writes about watercolour, her ten top tips for producing bright and clean mixes are, in general, pertinent to all media. Sometimes it’s better to use your time to experiment, practise and play before beginning another painting in earnest, and this article certainly encourages you to become more creative with your colour. I hope you follow Claudia’s advice and let me know how your experiments feed into your artwork.
