Monday in Painting Tutorials – Watercolor expert Michelle Morris will be demonstrating how to paint two more types of watercolor washes: variegated washes and graded washes. If you missed her other (fantastic) tutorial on flat washes, make sure to check that out too!

Tuesday in Motivation – Come by for the amazing story of one animation studio’s audacious goal—to produce an animated movie of Vincent van Gogh’s life, and to create every frame in the same style as his paintings. Get the full story on Tuesday, and learn how YOU can help make it happen.

Wednesday in Featured Artists – Don’t miss this week’s featured artwork by Graham “Broonzy” Williams. Graham paints in high-contrast vibrant colors that are absolutely breathtaking and well-worth a look! As always, if you’d like your own artwork to be featured on EE, just send it in!

Thursday in Painting Tutorials – Finish out the week with a Craftsy-sponsored tutorial that will demonstrate how to start painting gorgeous floral still lifes using acrylics. This tutorial is based on one of their free online art classes, which we’ll be linking to on Thursday if you’d like to try it out.
