James Cowie The Yellow Glove, oil on canvas, 22x26in. (56x66.5cm

True to Life

True to Life: British Realist Painting in the 1920s and 1930s brings together more than 80 paintings exploring the realist tradition in British art between the two world wars – a period of art that has been overshadowed by abstract art, which became fashionable shortly after. This exhibition at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art provides an opportunity to discover paintings from a little-known period of British art, with work by such artists as James Cowie (above), Laura Knight and Winifred Knights. The exhibition forms part of the Edinburgh Art Festival 2017 and various talks and tours have been arranged to coincide with the exhibition.

About Leisure Painter

Welcome to a summer of drawing and painting with Leisure Painter. This month we tackle summer landscapes, gardens and flowers, buildings, harbours and boats, animals, local scenes, a moonlit seascape, horses and a flamenco dancer in a variety of your favourite media. If you're ready to try something different, experiment with oil pastel resists with acrylic inks and watercolour, look at coloured grounds for mixed-media work and embrace digital with an app that will help you draw and paint better pictures! From loose and lively to detail, monotone to colour work, and projects from photographs to how to paint from life - enjoy another month of practical tutorials, demonstrations and inspiration.
