Elena Parashko Australian Artist

* In the May issue of the magazine Leisure Painter I have two articles. The first is on using technology to help in the art making process. I cover things such as scanning, mirroring, cropping, lightening, levelling and printing images. The second is a step-by-step demonstration of how I painted a sunset sky as a backdrop for a couple walking on the beach. Applicable for oils and acrylics.

* In the June issue of Leisure Painter, I show in a step-by-step demonstration how to paint an intriguing still life featuring a key hanging from a knob on a rustic wooden door. Suitable for both oils and acrylics.

* The Summer issue of Leisure Painter (which is on sale 15 June), contains my oil painting demonstration of an exotic orchid. A lot of realistic detail in this one.

* The July issue of Leisure Painter magazine features my step-by-step demonstration of how to paint a seagull on the shoreline of a beach. It's an interesting square composition.

* The August issue of Leisure Painter has my demonstration of three girls sitting under an umbrella at the beach. The technique is not as complicated as it looks.

* The September issue of Leisure Painter magazine contains my acrylic painting demonstration of an ocean view from a high grassy headland. With this issue comes the StartArt 3 supplement in which I have contributed an article on easy ways to add life to a scene. This involves very simple techniques to paint in distant boats, birds, figures and a moon.

* The October issue of Leisure Painter features my step by step oil demonstration on how to paint a simple seascape using only three colours.
