Monday in Painting Tutorials – Brandi Bowman will demonstrate the importance (as well as the many uses) of shadows in a painting. Whether you’re giving an object mass, creating mood, or adding a design element to lead the eye, shadows do it all.

Tuesday in General Art Advice – Not every work of art turns out to be a masterpiece. . . some are simply disasters from start to finish. But before you toss that hated painting in the trash, swing by on Tuesday and see what Niki Hilsabeck suggests instead.

Thursday in Painting Tutorials – Check in at the end of the week for an excellent overview of watercolor easels and their uses by Michelle Morris. Easels are simply another tool for the watercolor painter to use if needed—and you may find out that you don’t need an easel at all!
