This Week: 5/9 through 5/15

By Dan in Weekly Preview

Monday in Video Tutorials – Tomorrow, watercolor painter Jean Pederson will demonstrate how to “reactivate” a painting after it dries, so you can continue to paint on a wet surface even if you didn’t have time to finish the painting the first time around.

Tuesday in General Art Advice – Angela Sullivan has graciously sent in some tips that she’s learned over past year while painting with acrylics on a daily basis. Check back for those on Tuesday.

Wednesday in Featured Artists – Dale Knaak is a talented painter who (almost unintentionally) created an entire series of paintings depicting side alleys, back streets, and other alternate routes. We’ll have a few of them for you on Wednesday, and as always, feel free to submit your own artwork to be featured as well.

Thursday in Art Marketing Tips – Alyice Edrich will be explaining how to go beyond the basics of blogging, and use some HTML code to make your individual blog posts look nicer. I do this myself, and I daresay most full-time bloggers do as well, so it’s good information to have if you’re serious about blogging.

Friday in Art Opinion – As Facebook (and other social networks) continue to loosen their privacy controls, I think it’s becoming increasingly important for artists to understand exactly how much they’re sharing online. . . and what it could mean for both their professional and private lives. More on that, Friday.
