This Week: 7/24 through 7/30

By admin in Weekly Preview

Monday in Video Tutorials – Tomorrow, watch as Sean Dye demonstrates how to use a palette knife to paint a textured, golden sky. I’ve always been fascinated by palette knife painting myself, and this is a great way to see how it works.

Tuesday in Art Opinion – Susan Holland has written an interesting tutorial this week that compares the impact of “vague” words on a listener, and “vague” paintings on a viewer. I’ll let her explain it in full on Tuesday, but I think she’s got a great point!

Wednesday in Featured Artists – Drop by for some amazing shots by Raad Haddad, a talented photographer from Jordan. Plus, feel free to submit your own artwork to be featured on EE as well.

Thursday in Marketing Tips – Come by on Thursday and learn how to write compelling calls-to-action in your art blog. If you’re not doing this already, it would’t be a bad idea to fit this into your schedule on a regular basis.

Friday in General Art Advice – Karen Middleton will discuss 5 things, which I think most of us face, that can interrupt, or distract us from creating art. . . as well as how she overcomes them.
