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.

In November of 2006, EmptyEasel launched with very little fanfare. . . it was just another WordPress blog. :) Seven years later, it’s still going strong, thanks to all our talented writers who contribute articles on a weekly or monthly basis.

There will be no new articles this week, on the anniversary of our launch date, BUT here are just a few (well, seven, of course!) of our “best-of” articles that continue to be great resources for artists at every stage in their career:

How to Draw What You See

9 Visual Blunders Every Artist Should Watch Out For

Blending Colored Pencils with Rubbing Alcohol

How to Draw a Portrait of the Head

How to Add Incredibly Thick Texture to Your Paintings

Important Tips when Photographing your Art for the Internet

How to Make a Paintbrush Cleaner Jar

As always, thank you SO MUCH for reading, sharing, pinning, and continually supporting the work we do here at EmptyEasel.com. :) We’ll be back to our normal schedule next Sunday. . . see you then!
