'Plein-Air' Painting Has Its Drawbacks, too

  (via www.huffingtonpost.com)


 "Dangers of painting outdoors can be quite real. In 1996, painter Stephen Lyman hiked into Yosemite National Park and fell, dying of exposure, and wildlife artist Simon Combes was killed by a charging cape buffalo while walking in Kenya in late 2004. Framingham, Massachusetts painter Ben Aronson had a shotgun aimed at him by a farmer on whose land he had been trespassing. Certain precautions should be taken, such as asking permission before going on private property, not provoking animals or getting too close to them. " (Daniel Grant)

The Intellectual Origins of Minimalism

  (via www.artspace.com)


 "Minimalism, now recognized as one of the signal artistic strategies of the 20th century, was called many things in the 1960s: ABC Art, Literalism, Primary Structures, Specific Objects, Reductive Art. What was clear then was that the mute, unadorned, and often raw three-dimensional objects that were suddenly dominating many galleries (mainly in New York) were a world away from both the brushy, heart-baring heroics of then-waning Abstract Expressionism and the slick irony of the ascendent Pop artists" (Blair Asbury Brooks)

Watercolor Techniques: Overlaying Washes (Glazing)

  (via painting.about.com)


 "Learning to paint washes is fundamental to watercolor painting. A wash is watercolor paint diluted with water. You can control the value, or tone, of the wash by controlling the ratio of paint to water - the more water, the lighter the value will be." (Lisa Marder)

Discuss: Expressing the power of your art with words

  (via faso.com)


 "This much I know to be true: Art has the power to move people on a spiritual level. Do you think of your work on these terms? If so, how do you share those feelings with others? Do you tell this side of your artist story on your blog / newsletter? Do express the power of your art with words? OR do you let the art do the talking? " (Brian Sherwin)

Measure Your Mastery

 "If you focus on the number of twitter followers you have, your going to optimize your art business to get twitter followers, but if you focus on the quality of your artwork, you're going to become a better artist and, in my experience, in the end, better artists sell a whole lot more art, even without Twitter followers." (Clint Watson)

Richard Aldrich on 'progress'

  (via www.twocoatsofpaint.com)


 "The February issue of Art in America features a Ross Simonini interview with Richard Aldrich in which the artist discusses the notion of artistic progress. Here is an excerpt in which Aldrich deflates the traditional idea that an artist makes formal progress over the course of a lifetime, embracing a "stylist non-progression." I agree completely.

DIY: Customizing Your Own Gallery Wrap Stretcher Bars

  (via faso.com)


 "As with any DIY project, especially one worth pursuing beyond magazine instructions for truly odd looking table centerpieces, achieving competency in creating one's own gallery wrap stretcher bars will take some time, effort, and trial and error. In the long run, however, and especially if you want to have the freedom to create your own gallery wrapped paintings, in sizes customizable to your desires, then it's worth the work." (Carolyn Henderson)

The new Michelangelo sculptures are a sensation, but are they any good?

  (via www.theguardian.com)


 "Michelangelo lived like a hero and made art as colossal as his character. In between defying popes, daring to declare his passion for men and fighting for the liberty of the Florentine republic he carved and painted on a stupendous scale - when he was 30 he created the Giant, better known as David, and when he died at the age of nearly 90 he was working on the dome of St Peter's." (Jonathan Jones)

2014 Was a Terrible Year for Artistic Freedom

  (via hyperallergic.com)


 "Last June, Chicago-based artist Amie Sell found her work yanked off the walls of the gallery where her installation Home Sweet Home hung as part of the Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival. It critiqued the property management firm M. Fishman & Co., which happened to run the building and demanded it be taken down. This act of censorship was just one of 237 confirmed violations against artistic freedom around the world in 2014, according to a new report by FreeMuse that casts a dour shadow over the state of free expression." (Laura C.

Revitalize Old Content On Your Blog

  (via www.artbizblog.com)


 "There's some debate as to whether or not old posts should be deleted. Purists say they should remain as a record of your blog. I disagree. If it's content that is out-of-date and would lead readers astray, I feel like I have an obligation to delete those posts in order to avoid any confusion on my site. I cannot see the harm in deleting a post about a workshop that happened in 2007." (Alyson Stanfield)

Discuss: Art marketing and anatomy

  (via faso.com)


 "The study of anatomy should be at the forefront of your studio practice if you regularly focus on the human figure. The same can be said if your artwork involves animals or insects -- you need to know the anatomy of your subject! You need to know how the bodily structure of you subject functions. Knowledge of anatomical accuracy can push your art to the next level. " (Brian Sherwin)

Ask the Art Professor: How Do You Begin to Think Conceptually as a Visual Artist?

  (via claralieu.wordpress.com)


 "Learning how to think conceptually is tough for many artists. The process is unpredictable, and there are no answers at the back of the textbook. Some concepts will flow easily while others will have you banging your head against a wall for days on end. In the beginning, I can guarantee that you will fail much more than you will succeed.

Discuss: Have art reproductions hurt the market for original art

  (via faso.com)


 "Do you have an opinion about art reproductions (I'm thinking in terms of prints of paintings / drawings, POD services and so on)? It seems a lot of people feel that reproductions have hurt the market for art. One artist went as far as to suggest that mass produced prints have "devalued the value of original art" -- what do you think? Have art reproductions hurt the market for original art?" (Brian Sherwin)
