Issue Cover

The Artist  |  May 2014  


Creative colour-mixing ideas, how to decide on the size of your watercolour paper, how to simplify what you see to paint convincing compositions, why you shouldn't be afraid to include figures in your work - these are just a few of the practical features from Hashim Akib, Lucy Willis, Hazel Soan and Haidee-Jo Summers in this month's issue. We also provide illuminating insights into the working methods behind the remarkable pastels of world-renowned Andrew Hemingway and the luminous watercolours of award-winning Gordon McDowall, while Geoff Hunt continues with his monthly diary in which he shares his experiences of painting watercolour en plein air. Ian Sidaway tests the new watercolour pigments recently launched by Winsor & Newton, Janet Mayled explains how to add pattern and colour to an urban landscape for greater impact, and continuing the urban theme, Chris Forsey demonstrates a London scene at dusk, using acrylics to produce a composition full of sparkling light and atmosphere. With much more content in addition to these fantastic features, you won't need to look any further for inspiration, ideas and advice to keep you drawing and painting this month!
