Shown in this months issue are other artists I have total respect for and admire in so many different ways!
Their work is very different than my own - but that's the point...we all have our own unique style which keeps things exciting and the pages in 'The Artist' so fresh!
There's a 'Wild about Printmaking' article from superb and talented artist Lisa Hooper who quite rightly, gained 'The Artist' Award at the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation Wildlife Artist of the year exhibition 2015 for her superb hand coloured collagraph of 'Curlews' (featured in her article) which I absolutely adore, as with all of Lisa's work.
Chris Rose features too with his beautiful wildlife paintings in oil which are amazing! Chris is also secretary of the Society of Wildlife Artists...and more besides! Pages 22 -25 have a great insight into his personal vision as a wildlife artist.
Further on in the magazine (past my PanPastel review) is Barry Freeman and his superb pastels. I love Barry's oil pastel work in particular and several of them are featured in his article 'Winter Landscapes' on pages 31-33.
As if that wasn't enough David Parfitt (elected member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours) has a really great article showing one of his paintings from start to finish in his informative article from pages 45-47.
What a great line up and I'm delighted to be associated with the great and the good in this issue!
With more besides in the full 74 page magazine (great value for money), these are just a few of the positively good reasons to grab a copy now!
