Monday in Video Tutorials – In tomorrow’s video clip, watercolor artist Jan Kunz will demonstrate how to accurately measure and paint the shadow colors of a face, including any reflected light cast on the skin.

Tuesday in General Art Advice – Clemens Greis put together a great tutorial on building high-quality frames for your paintings, without breaking the bank. If you’re handy with tools (or willing to learn) this article is for you.

Wednesday in Featured Artists – Self-taught artist Rachel Rolseth has created a unique niche for herself with her intriguing “rustscapes.” Check those out on Wednesday, and don’t forget to submit your own artwork to be featured too!

Thursday in Art Marketing Tips – Alyice Edrich has come up with 10 quick blog post ideas that anyone can make use of. It’s an art blogger’s “cheat-sheet” of sorts, for when you’re too busy to spend a lot of time blogging. Highly recommended.

Friday in Art Movements – At the end of the week, drop by for an introductory article on linocuts by Shana James. (Linocuts are a type of relief print similar to woodcuts. . . just a whole lot easier to make.) If you’ve never experimented with linocuts before, I’d encourage you to come back on Friday to learn more.
