Issue 39

We start 2019 off with a bang! There are delicate botanicals in watercolour, beautiful landscapes and florals in oils, graphite drawings done with incredible precision, quirky fabric sculptures, dreamy surrealist acrylic landscapes, exciting figuratives in oils and an excellent demonstration in charcoal. We continue our workshop series in both oils and watercolours; the seasonal summer palette, and an in-depth look at varnishes.

Congratulations go to Robert Curwen on winning the Big Challenge no.6 and to student Alida Boon for her winning portrait in the Student’s Gallery. We also announce all the past winners of prizes for competitions held in issues 34 to 36.

This issue is crammed full of inspirational art, interesting stories and technical tips to get you on track for your best creative year yet.
