Monday in Drawing Tips – Check in tomorrow for another step-by-step tutorial from Carrie Lewis as she explains how to glaze with colored pencil. (Please note that this article directly builds on her colored pencil underpainting tutorial from a few weeks back, so make sure to read that one first if you haven’t already.)

Tuesday in Art Marketing Tips – Art coach Aletta de Wal will be looking “under the hood” of what makes a good artist website, including—among other things—quick load times, large image sizes, a functional search box and much more.

Wednesday in Featured Artists – Drop by mid-week to check out Chris Baker’s amazing illustrations, caricatures, and portraits. As always, if you’d like to submit your own work to be featured on EE, you can do so here.

Thursday in Artist Interviews – Alyice Edrich and watercolor painter Crystal Cook will discuss the importance of adding (or more specifically, capturing) real human emotion in every work of art you create.
