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, George James will be demonstrating how to create smooth, controlled watercolor washes on Yupo paper—a surface which is normally known for its tendancy to mix and bleed colors together without control.

Tuesday in Art Opinion – Steve Worthington sent in a thought-provoking article the other day which I think is well worth publishing. In it, he compares modern art with modern music, and contrasts the general public’s taste in music with its taste in art. Read the full article on Tuesday.

Wednesday in Featured Artists – I’d also encourage you to drop by mid-week to check out some incredibly energizing abstracts by Usha Patibandla. The sheer visual impact of her paintings is truly amazing.

Thursday in Artist Interviews – Alyice Edrich and Carolyn Madvig (a successful mixed media artist) will discuss the business side of selling art by consignment, as well as what it takes to create one-of-a-kind pieces over and over again.

In addition, this week our friends over at ArtistsWanted.org have extended an invitation to all EmptyEasel readers to participate in their 2nd annual “Artists Wanted : Year In Review” competition.

This competition is open to all mediums and styles of art, with the goal of finding the best emerging artists of the year. Prizes include a $25,000 Grand Prize and a featured booth at the SCOPE Art Show in NYC this March. If you’re interested, submit your work here, and include the promo code ArtistsWanted20 to receive 20% off your entry fee.

Artwork will only be accepted until midnight, January 31st, so the clock’s already ticking, folks. I should also mention that there are a bunch of other awards up for grabs, too, like the People’s Choice Award, and awards in specific categories (Photography, Painting, Design, etc). Head on over to their info page for the full contest details.
