  • Make a Painter’s Resolution

    G. Daniel Massad's pastel paintings (above, Studio , 2008) are eloquent examples of thoughtful, tension-filled compositions. I’m starting this year by reassessing my approach to how to paint and recommitting to more concentrated studio time. I don’t necessarily feel that I want to completely...

  • Courtney's Favorite Resources

    Untitled by Mark Tennant, 2009, charcoal, 24 x 18. Featured in Drawing , Winter 2010. As we head into the home stretch of the holiday season and finish up 2013, I did the math and realized it is just a couple of months shy of my anniversary at Artist Daily. It’s flown by! And I'm still loving...

  • Keep the Artistic Fires Burning

    As we head into the end of the year and the heart of winter, it is nice to keep our inner artistic fires burning with visual inspiration and a wellspring of techniques to explore so that we make the most of a period of time that can otherwise just slip by. We can do that in a number of ways. First, perhaps...

  • An Artist Tells All

    Brass with Oranges by C.W. Mundy, 2010, oil on linen. No apologies from me for that bit of sensationalism (I must have written tabloid headlines in another life). The truth is I was lucky enough to sit down and chat with artist and instructor C.W. Mundy, who is generous with both his time and his talents...

  • Premixing Your Paints: Pros and Cons

    Sometimes it is helpful to set or premix your palette, so that colors you anticipate using will be ready and waiting for you. This is especially true if painting outdoors, as C.W. Mundy did in this work titled The Lilly Mansion, where light and weather conditions can change rapidly. A lot of painters...

  • Re: Challenge #25 - November 2012

    Because you invited experienced artists as well as beginners I decided to participate. I drew a version of the basket photo which I post below. It reminds me of a copy in pen that I made recently of one of Van Gogh's early still lifes (which I copied from a book). As with that copy (which follows...

  • Everything is Practice for Everything Else

    I have painted many still lifes over time, and I like to approach the genre differently at different times. Because it's not always possible for me to paint at the same time each day (for uniform light), I sometimes "practice" the subject by using other media that are quicker, less complicated...

  • new still life objects

    Every so often I revisit the thrift stores in search of new still life objects, and rarely do I leave empty handed. My most recent trips were no exception. And now in turning to still life again, I have a bunch of brand new-to-me things to look at and study. I first use them to make drawings. I want...
