… to the July issue of Artists & Illustrators Magazine, packed full of arty inspiration and practical advice. Now the sun is out, Anna Mason encourages you to schedule regular times in
your diary to take your sketchbook, pencils and travel paints with you out into the fresh air and into nature. The combination of both nourishes your emotional wellbeing as she found out after going through a diffi cult period in her life. Ann Witheridge also encourages you to go outside with your art. The beauty of en plein air landscape painting is that you become part of nature, the birds sit with you, the flowers scent the air and the scenery changes as the day progresses. We may sometimes take nature for granted, but it’s one of the greatest free gifts life off ers us.
Edward Munch may be best known for his iconic – and perhaps widely overused – painting The Scream. Now, a collection of his work will be shown for the fi rst time in England this summer. We feature a selection on page 40 and look into the life of Norway’s most celebrated painter.
We’re thrilled to launch our annual art competition, The British Art Prize 2022 in partnership with edding. It’s open to artists of all abilities, whether you are a hobby painter, an emerging artist or a seasoned professional; all ideas, mediums and techniques will be considered. As well as a prize fund worth more than £10,000 ( which includes editorial coverage) the competition will provide winning artists with an important platform to gain valuable exposure and recognition for their work, including
extensive coverage in this magazine and their work being exhibited at a major London gallery. It’s a brilliant opportunity to get your work and name out into the wider art community. So, what are you waiting for? Don’t delay: get your entries in today!
