It’s already March! Everyone is over the holiday slump and sharpening up on their creative skills. If you want to learn about the basics of painting with acrylics, capturing the sea in watercolours or how colour temperature can affect your painting, then this is the issue for you.
Our featured artists use a variety of mediums including oils, gouache, charcoal, soft pastels and graphite. The subjects range from still life, portraits and landscapes to figuratives, florals and animals.
Ana de Vlieg introduces us to a handy watercolour travel kit in “Painting from life in a tin”; Maritha Van Amerom shares her love of life drawing and why it is so important; and the Italian Artshop unveils some of the brand new products on their shelves.
If your art year hasn’t quite got going… then now is the time to start!
