welcome

One of the joys of editing Artists & Illustrators is getting the chance to visit artists’ studios and see works in progress laid out on tables or propped on easels. It’s a fantastic way to get a better understanding of how masterpieces are made, seeing the preparatory lines and blocks of initial colour that will eventually be lost under subsequent layers of paint. Much of the motivation for our practical articles is a desire to give you all that same level of insight, to see works develop in stages and glean something from the techniques used to get to that point. Having said this, there is still much to learn from looking at completed works in a gallery setting. I was reminded of this last week when I visited the Barbican’s…

SOUND AND VISION I often get ideas from your forward-looking magazine, which often gives artists something new to think about. These ideas help me to create atmosphere in my work. Something rather more difficult is creating an atmosphere where the subject is musical. I have been trying to do this recently with abstract painting. Nothing too way out. but something that can give a person viewing the painting a feeling of rhythm and sound. I wonder if other readers have developed anything similar? Derek Stark, via email THE ART OF BUSKING When I was in Israel and out walking one morning, I found a small bench where I could lay out my utensils and paint a postcard-size illustration of a nearby view of the Wall [below]. I had a brilliant view and my painting…

new beginnings

I have been a subscriber to Artists & Illustrators for some years and particularly value the new ideas that encourage me to try something new. Terence Clarke’s article Second Time Lucky [Masterclass, Issue 404] caught my eye as I have a number of disappointing works that I I decide what to do with them. These included a canvas on which I had been playing with impasto textures in a landscape setting. There were bits I liked surrounded by lots of areas which I did not like at all. Inspired by the article, I painted over the whole thing and tried a still life. Jeff Clarke, via email…

PAULA REGO A first major English retrospective in two decades is a lesson in telling stories and being bolder Art is, above all, about communicating and one of our greatest living visual storytellers is the Portuguese artist Dame Paula Rego. While the 84-year-old clearly possesses a vivid and often macabre imagination, she also works hard to supplement this to help get her stories across. She admits to turning to folk tales and story books whenever she struggles with a painting, while her studio looks more like a theatre props department, filled as it is with masks and mannequins, stuffed toys and costumes. Working with such visual aids can be a useful way to tease out ideas. And while these fanciful set-ups bring character to Rego’s work, she balances these fictions by immersing herself…

lush life

The tropical jungle – a place of density, heat, colour and often danger. Perhaps these attributes are why this environment has always been such a draw for painters. Capturing all of that life is quite the challenge. Henri Rousseau is probably the most famous artist who has ever painted a jungle – his name instantly conjuring up images of palms and tigers and orange flowers blazing like flames in the midst of abundant greenery. Yet Rousseau famously never set foot in a jungle. He never even saw one from afar. Instead “Le Douanier” – the customs officer, as the French painter was known in a nod to his day job – worked from his imagination. This is a concept that will be familiar to Kate Morgan, whose paintings are a seductive blend of…
