The Art of Watercolour 29th issue - Watercolour one step closer to your goal
In our winter issue, many well-established artists tackle the subject: David Stickel touches on his successes and setbacks, Jean-Louis Thibaut looks back over his career of 30+ years, and newcomer Alisa Shea explains how watercolour helped her overcome personal issues. You will also meet Judy Saltzman, who doesn’t shy away from using a camera and a computer for her paintings; Denny Bond, who has become a master of composition; read about framing, human figure, social media and essential oils in our 12 page technical guide. And let’s not forget the results of our NWS/The Art of Watercolour 2017 and Readers’ competitions, with plenty of outstanding works…
Happy New Year to you all!

Readers’ competition : In every issue, your magazine gives you the chance to take part in a competition in order to encourage you to increase your talent. And now we’re going to do even more: we’re going to publish more winners in each magazine, provided of course that more and more of you continue to enter. The contest is an effective way to increase motivation and make your work known to your friends, other artists and the shows and galleries that are constantly looking in the magazine for their future exhibitions…
