Issue Cover

The Artist  |  June 2021  


Welcome to the June issue of The Artist. As always the magazine is packed with tips and techniques, practical advice and step-by-step demonstrations. Discover how Judith Yates creates her impressionistic multi-layered acrylic landscapes, how to paint family portraits in watercolour with Francesco Fontana, and how Helen Tarr creates lively flower paintings in oil. This month Paul Talbot-Greaves begins a new series in which he reveals the secrets of better paintings, starting with better design, Amanda Hyatt reveals her top ten tips for using acrylics like watercolour and Sarah Manolescue shares her strategies for painting en plein air in oils. We have advice on painting shadows and how to apply for funding to support your practice. Sarah Edmonds looks at why a daily drawing habit plays an essential part in becoming a successful artist, which could include entering competitions – we’ve listed some of them for you on our Opportunities page, and there’s still time to enter our 2021 TALP Open competition – see pages 14 and 15 for full details.
