Paint & Draw is the brand new monthly magazine that’s ideal for anyone who loves making art. It’s packed with great advice from experts, and full of fresh ideas to inspire beginners and accomplished artists alike. 

A whole range of media are covered, from watercolours to charcoal drawing, from acrylics and pastels to oil painting and coloured pencils, with workshops on how to perfect your techniques. In addition to all the great pointers inside, you’ll find all the inspiration you need. Discover fascinating new settings and subjects for your artwork, and new ways of sharing it with others. 

In issue one, Sylvia Paul conjures up a stunning floral still life in acrylics, while Jem Bowden paints an autumnal seascape in watercolours. For animal lovers, Jill Tisbury expertly draws a Chinese leopard in pastels, and we’ll show you how to digitise your artwork so that you can post it online or have prints made. There’s plenty more, including a celebration of the art of Edinburgh, while French Canadian painter Guillaume Menuel creates an atmospheric street scene in Montreal.
