Manor Lane Bourne, Lincoinsie E1098 Newsrade dtibuton by warner Group Publtians ple (Get 0177 31000) ‘won painters-online.co.uk Welcome from the editor ‘his month, we have great pleasure in Trescsins the 2016 winners of our Open Competition at Patchings (pages 59 to 63). Last week I talked to one of our professional artist judges, David Curtis, about what makes an award-winning painting in our exhibition. Whether painted on-site from life or from a photograph, the most successful work always shows first and foremost good drawing skills then a deftness of brush and what David calls the bravura performance. Keep submitting those large-scale paintings if that’s what you do best, but we are also looking for smaller, more high-risk paintings that ‘sing off the walls’ as he puts it. You'll find both types of work in this year's winning entries. Asan exhibition for amateur and hobby painters, the judges are always on the look out for work that expresses the energy and joy that go into painting something that you love rather than a theme that you just think will sell. When you can integrate both the joy of painting with a good skill set, you are well on the way to being successful in our sister magazine, The Artist's category, which is our open competition for experienced and professional painters, I consider the Leisure Painter Open Competition, in partnership with Patchings, the highlight of our year, Along with the newly launched Art Cub of the Year Awards, it is here to showcase your work, persistence and talent in the best way possible. As always | would like to thank our many and varied sponsors for helping to make these competitions so worthwhile and exciting, and grateful thanks to everyone at Patchings Art Centre for alll the hard work that goes into making the exhibitions and the festival such must-see events on all our calendars. Enjoy your month of painting. C4 Biss INGRID LYON Editor Set OCTOBER 2016 issue on sale 9 September ssrromerzoe Leisure Painter 3
