I was looking at Daily Paintworks this am and thought I would check out the latest "Challenge". I try to do these as often as I can. It looks like such a good way to practice doing big brush strokes and getting them in the right place. Here is the link: CHALLENGE I'll post mine tomorrow.
(This photo was taken with my husband's camera, Cannon Eos,30D. I had to read the book to learn how to use it because it is so complicated. Does it look any better than usual? Plus I used the color adjustment on picassa for more accurate color.
As soon as I get to 25, then I will mention it in my newsletter and include a coupon. If you want the coupon code it will be "THANKU25" (25% discount). I'll go ahead and activate it. Two sold, but I thought there would be more activity with "Views". I think maybe you have to advertise within ETSY. Maybe in December I will try doing that. With Daily Paintworks, ETSY, Pinterest, and FACEBOOK I am at my limit of things to track. Painting is what I like to do best so beyond this it would definitely interfere with time to paint. If you are going to start a business, I think FACEBOOK is a good way to start, then try Daily Paintworks. It is an education and inspiration to look at the work of so many talented artists on that site and a great motivator to paint as much as you can.
I finally figured out how to link DPW to ETSY. It took me a week.
