The Art of Watercolour Magazine 46th issue PRINT Edition
n this issue, we take you on a world tour of watercolours, with many artists with very distinct and different styles. The journey begins with Elena Brazzale's expressive portraits, before continuing with a portfolio of Angus McEwan's strikingly realistic works. Alisa Shea reveals her expertise in meticulously constructed watercolours. You will also find Stephen Zhang, eternally fascinated by the complexity and richness of nature. Finally, as summer is a good time to paint in the open air, we will stroll through the streets of Malaga with Luis Ruiz Padron and his sketchbooks. Find all these artists, among many others, in the new issue of The Art of Watercolour.

- Steve Rogers: For him, nothing compares with painting his subject on location. Whether at home or abroad, he is always inspired by the desire to capture colour and light in vivid watercolours.
- Elena Brazzale : Beyond simple resemblance, the Italian artist seeks above all to render the tenderness and expressiveness of her models.
- Diane boilard: Playing with the density or the lightness of watercolour at will, she paints nature, moving between abstract and figurative approaches.
- Kate Osborne: For her, expressiveness means freedom. The artist explains how her floral work consists in transcribing her vision of the subject onto paper.
- Tim Wilmot: This self-taught artist paints in a free, impressionistic style and remains inexorably drawn to landscapes, which he likes to break down into simple shapes.
- Luis Ruiz Padron: He likes to travel around his home town of Malaga, drawing the portrait of a city that is becoming more modern without denying its past.
- Stephen Zhang: His landscapes and vivid scenes formed by overlapping washes are both visually rich and emotionally profound. His art incorporates the artistic traditions of the East and the West.
- Alisa Shea: She always had a weakness for complexity and detail that requires a lot of work.To her, it’s the most rewarding feeling and something she likes to experience every time.
- Pam Wenger: Through her portraits she searches for truth, striving to capture the soul of her models.

Does the summer offer more opportunities for watercolour painting than any other season? One thing’s for sure: all over the world, summer is the season of exhibitions and art fairs and a time when artists get together.
The life of watercolourists can be divided into two cycles. The first, in the comfort of their studios, is a time to reflect, a moment of artistic introspection and perhaps an opportunity to experiment and why not try a new approach to watercolour. The second period coincides with the change in the weather. The warm summer days are a time for interaction and sharing ideas at the many events, courses and open air painting days that have returned after a year’s absence.
Of course, in the summer watercolour is above an outdoor affair. What a pleasure to be able to paint en plein air with all the challenges that involves (time constraints, the changing light and other unforeseen events). And it is to inspire you to roam the countryside in search of subjects, sketchbook and brushes in hand, that we are taking you away to wander through the streets of Malaga in the company of notebook artist Luis Ruiz Padrón, whose love of this Spanish city and its architectural gems is plain to see. And don’t miss American artist Steve Rogers, who has plenty of advice and recommendations to ensure your outdoor painting session is a success.
Happy reading and happy painting!
