Monday in Selling Art Online – Are all of the artwork images on your website professional quality? If not, it might surprise you to find out how much that little fact matters to the people who view your website!

As the editor of EE and co-founder of Foliotwist, I’ve seen a lot of great artwork photos and an equal number of awful ones. Many images are cropped poorly, some are angled and distorted, others just have bad lighting. . . but it all makes a HUGE difference in how your artwork is perceived.

Drop by tomorrow to learn why it matters so much, and how you can fix it.

Tuesday in General Art Advice – Steff Metal will share how to get started creating “found art” from everyday objects, trash, and other re-usable items.

Wednesday in Featured Artists – This week we’ll be showcasing three of Ronke Aina-Scott’s acrylic and mixed-media paintings. As always, if you’d like your own artwork to be featured on EmptyEasel please submit it here.

Thursday in Photography Tips – Our resident photographer, Zach McCabe, will explain a little bit about your digital camera’s histogram tool—including what it is, how to read it properly, and what it can do for your photographs.

Friday in Artist Interviews – Alyice Edrich will close out the week by interviewing talented oil painter, Rebecca M. Beal.
