We are an online artist community sharing ways to create and sell art. Join us to save big on art supplies or try our easy websites for artists.

Monday in Video Tutorials – Tomorrow, Pat Weaver will be demonstrating how to create a preliminary watercolor sketch by rubbing paint off of the painting surface rather than drawing or painting it onto the surface. Not only is this a fun variation on traditional sketching, it’s also a great exercise in learning to see shapes of light and dark within your subject matter.

Tuesday in Art Marketing Tips – Alyice Edrich continues her excellent series of art blogging tutorials with instructions on how to set up (and use) Twitter right alongside your art blog for maximum marketing results.

Wednesday in Featured Artists – Drop by on Wednesday to check out the quirky, colorful, nature art by Brian Cody. And while you’re here, feel free to submit your art to be featured as well.

Thursday in SEO for Artists – Longtime reader and frequent EmptyEasel contributor, Moshe Mikanovsky, will be sharing his own SEO success story. If you’re still on the fence about the importance of SEO and blogging, don’t miss Thursday’s article!

Friday in Drawing Tips – Rounding out the week, Miriam Slater will be listing nine common mistakes that people often make when drawing the figure, and giving us a solution for each one.

Plus, for any former BoundlessGallery artists. . .

When BoundlessGallery closed last week, I know that many of you were left high and dry without any place to sell (or even show) your art online.

I wanted to do something to help, so after talking it over with Zac, my foliotwist business partner, we decided to give 3 free months of foliotwist service to every BoundlessGallery artist who wants to try us out.

There’s absolutely no catch—just make sure to use this special sign-up page so we know you’re from Boundless. It takes only a few minutes to join, and we’ll even pay for your domain if you don’t have one already.

After your three months are up, you can continue on at the regular price ($30/mo), or switch to another website service—either way, this gives you more time to decide.

FYI, we’ve already had several Boundless artists join us, and we’d love to see you too!

Now, here are last week’s articles on EmptyEasel:
