I just finished reading a new book on artists and I was intrigued to see which ones are on the radar.
So, to find out which artists I would be most excited to meet, I asked my Twitter followers to tell me which artists they’d be most interested in meeting.
I found a few that stood out to me, like the artist who makes his own acrylics (and who’s also the creator of the popular DIY DIY paint kits).
He has an interesting perspective on the art world and what it means to make art.
The book is called The Art of Painting and he has a number of great articles on the subject.
Here’s a short sample of some of his posts.
First up, he has some advice for artists who are new to the art industry: “Make sure you read the craft guide first.
I don’t think most people get to this level.”
Another piece of advice he offers is to have fun with your own art.
“I’m a very casual person so I don.t really take the time to learn how to do things properly.
I like making things out of scrap.
You can make a painting out of just the bits you have lying around and having fun with it.”
So, if you’re a budding artist, and you’re interested in a few of his tips, be sure to check it out.
If you have more questions about artists, check out his book, The Art Of Painting.
