This Week: 5/25 through 5/31

By admin in Weekly Preview

Monday – Remembering Memorial Day in the US—no new article will be posted.

Tuesday in General Art Advice – If you’ve ever been commissioned for a work of art, you know that there are a lot of things that can go wrong—like not getting paid on time (or at all!) or simply having a difficult client. On Tuesday I’ll post some guidelines that I use when setting up a commission deal which might work for you too.

Wednesday in Featured Artists – Come back for some great photography by Rodion Yefymov, a self-taught photographer originally from Ukraine, now living in the UK.

Thursday in General Art Advice – This week’s reader-submitted article by Peter K. Worsley gives a good alternative to photographing your artwork, especially if you plan on making prints of your art later. Don’t miss it!*

Friday in Artist Polls – Here’s a question for all of you oil painters. . . what’s your favorite brand of oil paint? Vote here and see the results on Friday.
