Welcome to the November issue of Leisure Painter. Aimed at amateur painters, who want to make the most of their painting time, Leisure Painter is the UK's best-selling practical art magazine. Within this issue you will find tips and techniques for filling an illustrated journal and how to set yourself regularly painting challenges. There are painting projects from photographs to try, and step-by-step demonstrations for painting buildings, autumn leaves and landscapes in watercolour; still lifes, wildlife and trees in acrylics; and a detail from a ship's rigging in oils. Learn how to add colour to your sketches, follow a beginner's guide to working with oil pastels, and have fun using new coloured marker pens. Enjoy your month of painting with Leisure Painter.
