Description

This is a unique system for jump-starting artistic creativity and encouraging experimentation. It contains tips for creating marketable work and increasing sales for artists of all levels. The author is among the best and most celebrated daily painters. Too many artists find themselves in a frustrating rut: unable to sell paintings hanging in galleries, bogged down by projects they can't finish or abandon, and using any excuse to avoid working in the studio. Author Carol Marine was herself suffering from painter's block, until she discovered 'daily painting'. The idea is simple: do art (usually small) often (how often is up to the individual) and if you desire, post it and sell it online. Today Marine is among the best and most celebrated daily painters, and the curator of the popular online gallery dailypaintworks.com. In her debut, Daily Painting, Marine reveals the tips and tricks that helped her and other daily painters pick up the paintbrush and start creating beautiful, bountiful, marketable work.show more
