By the time you read this, it will already be Spring! Perfect timing for a bumper issue filled with articles on all mediums, to inspire you all the way to Summer.
This month our international artist is Denis Gorodnichy from Ukraine. His impressionistic paintings of the countryside surrounding his home town are a delight. We also showcase Cape Town artist Anja Black’s beautifully realistic floral paintings; Jessica-May Bergh’s exquisitely detailed drawings; cover artist Lauren Redman’s photographic pastel portraits; and Nompumelelo Ngoma’s fascination with fabrics. There are also tips and techniques for pastels, watercolours, graphite, pen and ink, acrylics and oils.
Don’t forget to enter our cover competition and stand the chance of winning a trip to France for two! The closing date is 31 December, and the theme and rules are on page 20 of this issue.
