Monday in Video Tutorials – The video that I’ll be posting tomorrow is probably the clearest, most concise demonstration of how to create easy texture that I’ve ever seen. Do stop by to watch if you’re looking for a simple way to add textured backgrounds to paintings, collages, or. . . anything, really!

Tuesday in Drawing Tips – Ronnie Tucker will be sharing how he uses charcoal to create realistic black and white portraits. (I especially like how he starts off with a medium value background.) More on that, Tuesday.

Wednesday in Featured Artists – Make sure to drop by on Wednesday to see some very cool, jazz-inspired acrylic paintings by Tim Nyberg. And as always, if you’d like your own artwork to be featured on EE, let us know!

Thursday in Artist Interviews – Art can be more than just a career or hobby. . . it can be a calling, too. Don’t miss this Thursday’s interview with painter, designer, and pastor, David Weiss.

Friday in Selling Art Online – It’s been several months since I posted an update about Foliotwist, my other website for artists, so on Friday I think I’ll do that. I’m actually working on a BIG new feature for Foliotwist right now, which I can only hint at for the time being. . . but I’ll pass along what I can at the end of the week. :)
