Artists Back to Basics is an entry level magazine for all artists. From setting up a studio to what easel to choose it’s a must for all artists. Featuring the latest in news, reviews and products from the art world as well as exhibition previews and reviews

A Love For Realism • Once his children were growing up, Wayne happily found he was able to once more devote time to his beloved passion for painting, including attending some wonderful workshops and exhibiting and selling his artworks.

Katherine Gorge • Wayne captures the glory of Katherine Gorge, Northern Territory in this beautiful painting.



Fudging and Squirling- Part 3 • In the first two parts of this series we reviewed the stages necessary in creating a freehand drawing layout in order to bring it to the point at which the more advanced tonal techniques can be applied. In parts 3 & 4 we will explore various aspects of drawing hyper-realistically using hatching as a tonal starting point.

Watercolour Glazing for Luminosity • How can you achieve a glowing and intense colour while still retain translucency in watercolour? The answer is OVERGLAZING and building up layers of several difference colours to make the finished colour ‘sing’.


Christmas Buyers’ Guide • That special time of year is rapidly coming around again … the time when you want to find perfect gifts for all the creative people in your life. Or perhaps you would like to surprise yourself with something stunning for your very own studio. Here is a range of excellent choices from some of your favourite art materials suppliers.

This Is What We Do On Fridays • Each week about a dozen people meet on the deck at Bloomhill Cancer Help Centre, in Buderim Queensland, to enjoy one another’s company and to paint. We are gently guided by our facilitator Eva King, assisted by Johanna – a Bloomhill volunteer.

Aspiring to Change • According to this New South Wales painter, there is always something in an artist’s work that can spark an idea – whether it is the subject chosen, a colour, a line or a texture. She loves to see the work of other artists.

Albury Countryside • An artist whose habit is to paint coastal and river scenes has turned her attention to the rural area of Albur y on the New South Wales/ Victoria border to create this spectacular landscape work.

Fudging and Squirling- Part 4 • Well, we’re finally through the looking glass and standing in crazy artist land.

The Wonders of Watercolours • The stated ambition of this Queensland artist is to become an excellent watercolourist – not ‘pretty good’ in two or three mediums. A look at his work will tell you that he has already reached that goal.

Serene Streetscape • A clever Queensland watercolourist describes the process for rendering this charming picture of a quiet street in a rural township.

Brush Strokes • Last article we discussed using your brushes with subtlety. In this article we are going to look into that a little further.

The Image Makers – Art Exhibition • 21st November to 5th December, 2013 The Petrie Terrace Gallery, 3/162 Petrie Terrace, Brisbane 10am-3pm Daily.
