ImagineFX issue 189 is dedicated to teaching you new art skills and inspiring you to get painting your own works of art. In the workshop section of our latest issue, Dave Greco (our cover art star) puts his own twist on another artist’s style. This painting was inspired by the popular Instagram art challenge #drawthisinyourstyle, so if you’ve ever wanted to give it a try, pick up a copy of this edition to see how it’s done. Make sure you also follow our Instagram page for more art and insight.

Elsewhere in this edition, Phil Galloway shows us how to paint a portrait in ArtRage, artist Emily Hare shows us around her lofty art studio, we lose ourselves in the sketchbook of Halil Ural and we also continue our quest to find our Artist of the Year, so please make sure you submit your work to be featured.
