This Week: 8/17 through 8/23

By Dan in Weekly Preview

Monday in General Art Advice – Do you know how to keep your art buyers coming back for more? Tomorrow Denise Telep will share valuable insight on turning one-time buyers into life-long collectors—and even advertisers—of your work.

Tuesday in Painting Tutorials – If you were around last week when Dianne Mize explained the Japanese concept of Notan, then you’ll probably want to come back on Tuesday for her next tutorial: using Notan compositional techniques in a painting.

Quick announcement - EmptyEasel is creating a better, simpler way for artists to have their own art website. We're launching it this month to a limited group of artists. Click here to email us and grab your spot!

Wednesday in Featured Artists – Part minimalist, part expressionist, Richard Hearns’ textural landscapes are just a little bit different—and well-worth a look. Get the full story right here, this Wednesday.

Thursday in Selling Art Online – StumbleUpon.com is a very fun way to market yourself and your art on the internet. I’ll show you the ropes on Thursday, but trust me, this is one art marketing method which really doesn’t feel like work!

Friday in Photoshop Tricks – As usual, Margot Dinardi’s latest GIMP tutorial will be coming out at the end of the week. Drop in to learn about some of the most important drawing tools in GIMP (like the pen tool, for example).
