This Week: 1/28 through 2/3

By Dan in Weekly Preview

Monday – A lot of painters first picked up paints and brushes after being inspired by Bob Ross and his 30 minute paintings on TV. Unfortunately, I think the Bob Ross Method doesn’t help artists in the long run, and I’ll talk more about that on Monday.

Tuesday – This Tuesday I’ll be reviewing ArtistsOnline.org.uk, another site for artists, especially those in the UK. It’s set up primarily to sell artists’ original work, but it also has a lot of interesting features I haven’t seen anywhere else.
Wednesday – After purchasing my own Wacom tablet this past week, I’ve been really impressed with it’s handling. Wednesday’s article will be an in-depth review of the Wacom Graphire 4 (the most basic Wacom Tablet) which you can get for under $100.

Quick announcement - EmptyEasel is giving away 50 custom-built portfolio websites to deserving artists this June. Click here to learn more or grab your spot!

Thursday – This week EmptyEasel.com received its first reader submitted artwork, which I’ll be featuring. Click here for information on how to submit your own artwork for review in the coming weeks.

Friday – Friday’s how-to article will be on seeing color like a painter. I’ll explain the exact methods I use for comparing colors, which help me get better results going from real life to the canvas. You won’t want to miss it.

Saturday – Last week’s single-panel comic was drawn entirely with my new Wacom Tablet, and this week I’ll be continuing to test my digital cartooning skills. Check back in for this week’s all new Saturday Cartoon.
