The coverage of subjects in the book is diverse: from landscapes and seascapes to still life, interiors and people. All the main painting media are represented - watercolour, pastels, oils and acrylics - aiming to ensure variety and interest.

The Leisure Painter magazine has a very committed readership of amateur painters, with a circulation of more than 25,000.From Library Journal:
This entertaining work brings to U.S. audiences a popular monthly column that has run in the British art magazine Leisure Painter since 1967. Twenty-four professional artists offer 26 practical painting projects in watercolor, pastels, oils, and acrylics. Subjects include a Greek scene with acrylics, a traditional cottage garden in mixed media, a Moroccan scene in collage, a Cotswold scene using pen and wash, and a mother and child in oils. Though it is more entertaining, this volume isn't as comprehensive as Simon Jennings's Art Class: A Complete Guide to Painting.
