"now is the time to enjoy painting outside"

Welcome! We're very happy to be combining our two favourite pastimes-being outdoors and painting- in this second issue. With the summer months ahead of us, now is the time to try en piein air painting; allow nature's light, colour, sights and sounds to seep into your artworks while you relax into your creative flow. We look at portraits and still life too, and enjoy the convenience of the subject matter with a range of artists working in different mediums. Beginners, 'don't go anywhere without your sketchbook' is this month's mantra; take them on holidays, walks and weekends away. And take inspiration from the beautiful, detailed examples featured on our pages, then find your own way of recording the elements that connect with you. Have fun! Editor/Art Editor…

painting outside

1 Cap, sunhat, sunshade… Don’t forget your sunhat! Having travelled to your spot and anticipated a fine session painting, you don’t want to wilt in the heat. 2 Painting board A clipboard is useful to keep your paper in place. Artist Jem Bowden made this one using a plastic board and bulldog clips. 3 Carrying case for your paints Store your tubes of paint and pencils (and rubber and sharpener) in a pencil case style container. If it’s see-through it’ll be easier when you’re rummaging around to find a particular colour. 4 Portfolio Protect your artwork in a portfolio. A cheap plastic one will do the trick, get one with a handle if you want to carry it separately, and make sure it’s big enough to take your painting board too. 5 Paper towels You can’t go wrong with…

On arriving at a location I explore, having a good look from various vantage points and considering the practicalities of painting from each. I take photos, using the camera viewfinder to compose with. Among other things, I often look for distinct foreground, mid-ground and distance so the composition will have depth. I then review the photos to find a composition that strikes me. From this…

try painting outdoors

Painting outdoors on location, or ‘en plein air’ can be one of the most inspiring and rewarding experiences for an artist. As a landscape artist and tutor I always encourage people to try it, because to me it is invaluable, as well as being my greatest pleasure. For those new to it, however, the prospect of taking your painting gear outside, and working in public view can be quite daunting. Luckily there are a number of things you can do to help ease yourself into a situation where you will soon be seeing the benefits to your painting, as well as thoroughly enjoying yourself. Enjoying the process Some artists paint outdoors as often as possible, and others never. Some use it to make ‘studies’ for more finished work undertaken at home or…

indian daily life

Indian Daily Life: a step-by-step guide Implying the background structure will allow the viewer to form their own interpretation. I had this reference photo of two women struggling with a heavy sack. Using sketches and photos on the trip I start to develop my composition. MATERIALS • Arches NOT surface paper 300g (140lb) • Artist watercolours in tubes • Brushes – 1.25 Flat, 5, 8 & 12 Round, 1 Swordfish • Framer’s tape • Old butter knife • Atomiser As artists we have to decide what subjects make us want to put paint to paper to capture our vision. We need to show the viewer why we chose this particular theme. Tip: it’s best to avoid painting subjects you know nothing about as this will be obvious in the result! From a personal perspective my interest is to capture an individual…
