Publication date: 3 May, 2021

By the time you read this, the lockdown rules will have relaxed, spring will have been and gone and, as a nation, we will be looking forward to life stepping up a gear once again. Which is why our founders, June and Alwyn Crawshaw, have written an encouraging guide to sketching.

In this issue, Jane Betteridge shows you how to incorporate texture into your work, Colin Brown paints a street scene from a picture of one of his favourite cities (New York) and the winner in the professional category of last year’s Artists of the Year competition, Martyn Harris, shows you how he tackles portrait commissions. While we’re on the subject of our Artists of the Year, turn to page 8 to read about the launch of 2021’s competition, which was dialled up a notch or two, with more chances of winning than ever before. On page 51 you can read about our live demonstrations, including four that our members can now view on Video on Demand.

Happy Painting and Drawing!
