IN THE 7th ISSUE:
• Focus: The RWS Contemporary Watercolour Exhibition 2012.
• International news: Watercolour events from all over the world.
• Readers’ letters: our answers to your questions.
• Revelations: discover our selection of noteworthy artists: Georges Artaud and Jeannic Le Voyer.
• Yuko Nagayama, still lifes. She likes the stunning beauty of flowers and their vibrant energy, but her works are more complex than they seem.
• Paul Jackson, multi-subject. If many artists choose to focus on one theme, Paul Jackson needs the challenge of diversity.
• Stephen Quiller, landscapes. During his career, he has developed a colourful art where shapes are merely suggested as opposed to being carefully rendered.
• Portfolio: Dmitry Rodzin, portrait and genre scenes. Using his wife and child as models, the Russian artist invites us into a serene and intimate world.
• Christopher St. Leger, urban scenes. The inventor of the inverse watercolour technique sets himself free from the rules to render urban scenes where liberty and life prevail.
• Marie-Line Montécot, landscapes, still lifes. She shares with us in all simplicity the fruits of her recent thoughts on colour, composition and subject matter.
• Lambert van Bommel, still lifes. Rather than paint idyllic landscapes, he prefers to portray discarded objects and rundown houses.
• David McEwen, figures and animals. He paints what he sees around him on a day-to-day basis: horses, neighbours and even people in uniform!

• Technical advice: preparing your work for art competitions and choosing the events that best suit your painting.
