Helpful Sites for Artists

**Note updating 5/31/2008 to add to the fun and interesting:
Dan - Check in his profile, he has several blogs with all you will ever want to know about trees with beautiful photos: http://tree-species.blogspot.com/
Original Post, May 1, 2008

Aside from the regular links on the sidebar of my blog, I have been thinking of helpful sites that I visit or that were recommended to me. I would be happy to add any that you know about as well, suggestions appreciated. (If I have skipped yours, let me know .. I'm forgetful!)

They are not in any special order. I follow some through wetcanvas.com that I don't have on my blog reader. I will add them on later. I will also make a link to this post on the sidebar so you can check these once in a while for new entries.

Some of the artists on my sidebar have helpful hints and good info, but do not regularly post advice. They do have beautiful art. So, be sure and check them out as well. For example, Leslie D'Allesandro Hawes, has some great 'how to' posts with colored pencil. Start here with links to her other posts. She doesn't do 'how to' posts regularly but these are great.

Places to get a web site and/or sell your work:

How to:
My demos: :)
Artistic and Business Advice:
Some of these have great "how to" advice as well.
Information, Resources
Artists with informative/instruction blogs:
Some of the other artists I follow but are not on my sidebar:
Fun and interesting, not on the sidebar

Excellent stuff. Thanks for your useful information. I hope many would have benefited with your blog. I always like art prints very much. Recently I saw Brent Bailer Gallery with many art prints. Everything was too good.
