Article for Paint Magazine

I’ve been asked to contribute an article for March’s edition of the Paint Magazine!

The article is a stage-by-stage piece where I create a painting from a photograph, in this case this beautiful female mallard.

Mallard (oil on board14″ x 10″) by Paul Apps U.A.

Each stage is discussed (with lots of hints and tips!) and illustrated with a photograph so that readers can follow each stage and paint their own version.

Paint Magazine is exclusive to members of SAA (Society for All Artists), the world’s biggest online art community who I am delighted to be a part of.

The magazine is full of news, articles, competitions, offers and step-by-step guides and is aimed primarily at leisure artists of all levels of experience to help them develop their creativity.

So, if you’d like to develop your creativity with like-minded others why not join the SAA?  There’s something for everyone!

The Mallard is currently drying but will soon be available framed at £650.  To register your interest, please contact the gallery.

My latest exhibition of landscapes and seascapes is now on at Green Chair Gallery until 9th February.
