I've been revisiting my attempts at painting from life whilst working on an article for Leisure Painter magazine that takes a look at the self portrait. One thing that struck me was that no matter how long we've been painting, not all our ducklings will turn into swans. Still, time is never wasted so long as we learn from our mistakes, and mine was, never try wholesale changes to a painting, it soon becomes two portraits in one.

All About Colour
Paint along with Steve Strode as he experiments with orange this month, and discusses how complementary and contrasting colours affect the painting of a sunset. Follow the demonstration then use the same ideas to paint your own scenes.
I'm lucky enough to have two articles Published in the summer edition of Leisure Painter magazine. The first, 'Good Habits' is about drawing:
'Be inspired by Steve Strode as he takes you through the process of buying and using one of our most important tools, the sketchbook. Don't restrict yourself to pencil either, he says, as he uses a variety of media, including cocoa, to render his drawings.'
The second is part eight in the colour series.
'Summer's here and if you enjoy painting landscapes and seascapes, the colour blue can't be ignored. Here's how to use this primary colour confidently, with Steve Strode.'
Thanks to Adebanji Adelade for his contribution on drawing in public for the first article; check out his blog for further inspiration on
