The Artist  |  May 19  


Welcome to the May issue of The Artist, packed with inspirational, practical features designed to help all artists develop their drawing and painting techniques in all media. From learning how to control your watercolour brushwork with Hazel Soan, choose the right medium for your style of oil painting, create the illusion of depth in a coastal scene in acrylics, to making simple but dramatic landscapes without a printing press, there's something for everyone, whatever your skill level or preferred medium. Discover how drawing cartoons can help you to loosen up in your painting with Shirley Trevena and enjoy the benefits of painting en plein air with tips and advice from Geoff Hunt, Peter Graham and Paul Gadenne. Try spray-paint techniques to spice up your mixed-media compositions, add figures to give life to your watercolour paintings with Amanda Hyatt and paint a seasonal bluebell wood in three easy steps with Paul Talbot-Greaves. There's also a wealth of information about competitions to enter, exhibitions to see, special offers, art world news, courses and holidays and much more to enjoy in this month's issue. Plus, don't forget to enter your best work to our TALPOpen competition for the chance to see your work exhibited, published in the magazine, and win one of the fantastic prizes worth over £17,000!
