Art can sooth your soul and be a happy distraction during troubled times. With most artists unable to travel, see friends or even get out and about to gather reference images, coming up with new ideas has been a challenge. If you’ve found yourself stuck in your studio staring into space, maybe you’ve been inspired to paint the objects around you, or the changing scenery outside the window. Maybe you’ve been re-working those old failed paintings, or started a whole new series. Whatever your method for coming up with new ideas, we’d love to see them. Enter our new competition and you could earn yourself the title of “Lockdown Artist of the Year”.
In this issue we hope to inspire you further with a variety of demonstrations and tips. There are tutorials for painting snow using acrylics, flowers in oils or even some ideas to jazz up your 2021 journal using brush pens. Expand your creative journey – try something different today!
