This Week: 11/16 through 11/22

By admin in Weekly Preview

Monday in Art Marketing Tips – After experimenting a bit more with Twitter (the extremely popular micro-blogging service) I realized that it may have some marketing usefulness for artists after all—just not in the way that most people would think. Drop in tomorrow to see what I’ve learned.

Tuesday in Painting Tutorials – Few things are more irritating for than finding a distracting visual tangent in a finished painting. If this has ever happened to you, don’t miss Dianne Mize’s upcoming tangent tutorial on Tuesday.

Wednesday in Featured Artists – Lisa Carney is an abstract multimedia artist from Quebec, Canada. Visit EmptyEasel on Wednesday to see some of her artwork, and feel free to submit your own art to be featured as well.

Thursday in Motivation – In this week’s reader-submitted article, Rose Welty offers some advice on how to create that masterpiece you’ve always dreamed of. This isn’t a “secrets of the old masters” type of article, just good ol’ common sense mixed in with a few ideas on time-management.

Friday in GIMP Help – Margot Dinardi will finish exploring the fascinating blending modes of GIMP and Photoshop. Check out the first, second, or third article in this series to catch yourself up before then.
