This Week: 9/14 through 9/20

By admin in Weekly Preview

Monday in Painting Tutorials – Tomorrow, Brandi Bowman will be demonstrating 4 fun ideas for creating unique portrait paintings from photographs. As always, her work (and advice) is exceptional. . . I guarantee once you read this article you’ll be inspired to paint a creative portrait of your own!

Tuesday in Art Products – Do you have a favorite brand of markers that you use? Perhaps you’ve never really tried artists’ markers before—if so, then don’t miss Adriana Guidi’s article on Tuesday. She’s been trying out several brands of markers, and she’ll be sharing her results!

Wednesday in Featured Artists – Swing by for some gorgeous landscapes painted by Montana plein air painter, Natalie Norrell. And remember, if you’d like your artwork to be featured on EE, email us a pic! We’re always looking for new artwork to showcase.

Thursday in Motivation – Mark Hilsden’s story is a fascinating one, with more than a few ups and downs—but through everything, his determination to succeed as an artist never wavered. Aptly titled, “Don’t Let Others Steal your Dream,” this Thursday’s article is for every one of us that aspires to create art.
