The Pottering Artist

The Pottering Artist Issue 6

"An Aladdin's cave of painterly fires up my imagination"

The Pottering Artist is the magazine from artist and instructor, Alison Fennell. Based in South Wales, Alison teaches painting and drawing in person, through her website and on her Youtube channel (voted in the top 50 art tutors in 2019 by Buzzfeed).

"I work in watercolour, pastel and ink and my indie ad-free magazine focuses on how to perceive, draw and paint for pleasure...The magazine offers a rich, intimate and frank account of how I perceive, draw and paint in the hope that it will help others on their artistic path."
