The magic of watercolour

A diverse range of watercolour styles and techniques will be on show at the annual exhibition of the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours (RI) at the Mall Galleries, London. This year will be its 206th exhibition and, as always, will include work by RI members alongside selected work from non-members, ensuring a good mix of contemporary and more experimental works using watercolour and water-based media.

The 206th RI exhibition takes place at the Mall Galleries, The Mall, London SW1, from 6 to 21 April. Visit www.mallgalleries.org.uk for opening times. For more information about the RI and how to become a member, visit www.royalinstituteofpaintersinwatercolours.org

About Leisure Painter

Welcome to the April issue of Leisure Painter. Aimed at beginners and amateur painters, it is packed with practical advice, step-by-step demonstrations, illustrated techniques and tutorials to help you draw and paint successfully. David Bellamy introduces his sketchbook secrets and launches the first of two new painting competitions: Your sketchbook challenge. For watercolourists, we continue our year-long back-to-basics series – this month the wet-in-wet technique – along with watercolour still lifes, a rainy day crowd scene and tonal painting. Learn a five-stage acrylic painting process for landscapes, practise line and wash techniques, mix watercolour with pastels, and put down your brushes to try the 'pour' technique for acrylics. Enjoy another creative month with the UK's best-selling learn-to-paint magazine.
