Leisure Painter March

As usual, in Malaysia, you get UK magazines of the month in the middle of the month, sometimes even at month's end.

This month's Leisure Painter is must read for drawing enthusiasts for Ray Campbell Smith teaches Part 3 of his Drawing Matters section. I especially like the section on how to correct compositional errors (see picture below). I think if you start right in composing a picture, then the rest will sort of fall into place.

Other interesting sections include loosening your watercolour landscapes and for beginners, easy colour mixing tips.

By the way, this month's issue also carries a Painting Courses catalogue and if you are interested in planning a painting holiday, check it out.
