Monday in Video Tutorials – Ratinda Das will share several tips for creating a flat watercolor wash using just Permanent Alizarin Crimson and water. For those of you who haven’t done this yourselves, drop in tomorrow and see how it works.

Tuesday in General Art Advice – If you’re tired of buying or stretching canvas for every new oil painting, check back in on Tuesday and see what Katie Hurley’s up to. She’ll discuss some of the less-common oil painting supports she’s been using lately, including (among other things) watercolor paper.

Wednesday in Featured Artists – Timo Hilger is one of those painters whose work just blows you away every time, even with the simplest of subjects. See a few of his stunning still lifes on Wednesday, or send in your own artwork to be featured next.

Thursday in Announcements – Santa Claus is coming to town, folks. . . and just like last year, I’ve decided to feature some holiday artwork on EmptyEasel leading up to Christmas. If you want to participate, stay tuned. More details to come on Thursday.

Friday in Selling Art Online – We’ve recently made some changes at Foliotwist, so on Friday I’ll take a minute to explain what’s new and different. Even if you already have your own art website, I think you’ll be interested.
