This Week: 11/30 through 12/6

By admin in Weekly Preview

Monday in Art Marketing Tips – After studying Twitter a bit more I’ve decided to write a follow-up post to my article on marketing your art through Twitter. If you’re an artist and you’re using Twitter, make sure to come back tomorrow and check that out.

Tuesday in Painting Tutorials – Dianne Mize’s latest tutorial gives four methods for achieving cleaner values and crisper colors while painting. This is a must-read article for new painters and anyone who has trouble keeping their colors pure on the canvas.

Wednesday in Featured Artists – Soniei (pronounced sO-nE-A) is a contemporary Canadian artist who creates abstract paintings influenced by Japanese imagery. I particularly enjoy the “deep” whimsy of Soniei’s paintings, and I think you will too. Drop in on Wednesday for that.

Thursday in Art Opinion – Are you a one-canvas-per-painting type of artist? If so, come back on Thursday to learn why Carol Nelson recommends mixing things up with multiple canvas paintings, traditionally known as diptychs or triptychs.

Friday in Art Marketing Tips – About a week ago I received an article by Cathy Robertson listing ten ways that artists can sell their art, along with pros and cons for each method. It may be an overview for some, but I’ll be posting it on Friday and I’m betting most of you will be able to get at least a couple of good ideas from it.

Plus, here’s a new deal for EE readers, just in time for the holidays:

Signature Canvas—one of EE’s sponsors—is offering a buy five get one free deal on their new Gatorfoam and Baltic Birch panels. Artists can choose between a cotton canvas or Claessens linen surface (just like with their stretched canvases) and prices start as low as $5 for an 8×10 panel.

For those of you who are daily painters these panels could be a very cost-effective yet professional solution. Head on over to or call 800.420.3434 to order—they’ll automatically add a 6th panel of equal value when you do. You can also learn more about the Gatorfoam and Baltic Birch panels right here.
