Artful Resources & Links

Paint Alexandria 2009
From The Art League’s Paint Alexandria event in 2009.

In our continuing quest to be helpful, we’ve gathered some miscellaneous links artists might find useful or interesting. Click away!

  • Because perspective is always useful: the experience of a juried art show, written by an artist and a juror. The takeaway: whether your artwork is accepted or rejected, don’t forget one juror’s opinion is just that!
  • Play around with this new Virtual Paint Mixer by Golden, and check out their explanation of the difference between monitor colors and the pigments in your paint.
  • Artist Daily has a good overview of what copyright means for artists in their free e-book, Copyright 101 For Artists (note: you’ll have to register for free with Artist Daily to download the PDF). It has basic tips on your rights, the rights of other people whose work you might use, and more.
  • Attending one of The Art League’s travel workshops or flying with your art supplies for another reason? Tip: Don’t pack any solvents or flammable materials, and consider buying new supplies at your destination and trying something new. The Mindful Artist has a useful article with more advice for traveling with art supplies — and here’s another from Outdoor Painter.
