Watercolour Blogs & Forums 

 

One of the most recent developments in online technology is the blog. Love 'em or hate 'em there is no getting away from the fact that they can be an invaluable tool for helping artists progress in their work. Art Blogs and Forums are a fantastic way to talk to other artists and to get free advice on virtually anything from technique to exhibiting your work and thus we would be doing our readers a great injustice if we did not include a section informing you of the best ones around.

Naturally we would want to recommend our own forum/blog as good place to start where you will find lots of tips & tricks as well as informative articles on watercolour. We also keep our readers up to date with new products and tutorials added to the site here.

We would also recommend a visit to the following watercolour blogs and forums which we think are among the best around. As always if you come across one that you feel is worthy of inclusion on this list - let us know by emailing the
details to yourcomments@thewatercolourartist.com. Happy blogging!.....

Painting at the End of the Earth

Last year, artist and adventurer David McEown enthralled artists with his daily blog posts from the radio room of the icebreaker Kapitan Khlebnikov as it cut through the pack ice of Antarctica. This September, he undertakes another journey, only this time the Kapitan Khlebnikov will travel north to Greenland and then, in the middle of the Arctic Ocean, to the top of the earth, the North Pole.

Each news item is blended with commentary from the artist behind the blog, Australian painter Dion Archibald, and written in a conversational style.

Making a Mark - by Katherine Tyrrell continues to be one of the best online sources I’ve found for pastel, pencil, and pen and ink information, as well as the occasional review of UK art shows and historical artists. Katherine’s also written some excellent posts on blogging and using Squidoo lenses, which we encourage you to read if you’re looking to increase your exposure online.

Lines & Colours I’m pretty sure there’s more art information on Lines and Colors than any one person could ever read. Of course, that’s not to say it isn’t worth trying. The author, Charley Parker, covers the lives and artwork of painters and illustrators both living and dead with new posts every day.

Up all Night Again This elegantly designed blog is authored by Kirsty Hall, an artist and art curator from the UK. Not only will you find frequent updates about her life and art but also some excellent articles for artists just starting out online.

ArtBizBlog Alyson Stanfield writes and podcasts about all aspects of the business side of art. I know many of us groan when we hear the words ‘business’ but Alyson consistently makes it seem both interesting and achievable.
