Issue Cover

The Artist  |  January 21  


The urge to create and make art has never been as strong as it is today as an antidote to the difficult times in which we are all living. So welcome to our latest issue in which our contributing artists share this overall instinct and their individual ideas on drawing and painting a range of subjects in a variety of media. Be inspired by Shirley Trevena's take on breaking the rules of perspective for creative results; discover the joy in painting shop fronts in acrylics with Michelle Heron, or learn how to capture a likeness and paint eyes with Archie Wardlaw. From features on mastering watercolour techniques to capture landscapes and paint gorgeous roses to encouraging us to try expressive drawing methods to help explore our creativity, there's plenty of advice and inspiration in this issue to help us create our own art through the months ahead. Plus don't miss the opportunity to enter our 2021 TALP Open Competition and win one of 35 prizes worth over £13,500 - see pages 12 to 13 for full details!
