This Week: 5/10 through 5/16

By Dan in Weekly Preview

Monday in Motivation – I’ve been writing down some semi-random musing lately on the topic of “What we want vs. what we need” as artists. I’ll be forming those into a single, coherent article tomorrow—it might be a wake-up call for some.

Tuesday in General Art Advice – A couple weeks ago I briefly published an article on EE which discussed how to choose a painting workshop. (It was plagiarized from another site, so I removed it the same day.) This Tuesday, however, the original author has kindly consented to send in the real version, so make sure to drop in for that.

Wednesday in Featured Artists – Stephen Magsig is a talented Detroit-based artist who specializes in painting the urban landscapes and architecture of his home city. Learn more about his work this Wednesday.

Thursday in General Art Advice – If you’re never sure where to set the prices on your art, then come back this Thursday. Courtney Mahaney will be explaining a “50/50” method for pricing your artwork which you may find useful.

Friday in Art Products – Carol Taylor ends the week with a review of the Caran d’Ache Neocolor II watercolor crayons, a versatile medium for painters and non-painters alike.
