ARTIST POLL – What Would You Like us to Write About?


  1. How to Create an Art Website

    We have written about various free artist website services, but have not yet explored creation of an actual art website on its own domain. This is how many artists have success on the internet. Check this poll box if you want tutorials on how to create one.

  2. Drawing & Painting Techniques

    These will not be “how to draw or paint” demonstrations as seen at many other sites. I will explain various techniques I have used over the years for drawing and painting, with mentions of art tools needed. If you would like to know more about painting or drawing techniques, please vote for this in the poll, or mention it below. Of course, if you have any art technique to share, please consider sending us a guest-post.

  3. Photoshop Tutorials

  2. Could you write a brief tutorial about how to add photos of your paintings to a stock photo background like a living room, gallery wall or ?? in Photoshop Elements?

  3. @JJ Jacobs
    Thanks for the great suggestion! I will add that one to my list!

  4. Not specifically on this list, but something I would really like to read about, is how to wholesale your art; e.g., how to market it directly to corporate art buyers, interior designers, architects, and real estate stagers, hotel art buyers, hospital art buyers, etc.

  5. @Linda Kenny
    Thanks Linda.. that's a very good suggestion... look forward to an article on this soon!


  6. If you are going to have info about proprietary programs like Adobe Photoshop and Corel Painter, you should also include pieces on Free Software such as Gimp and Inkscape.

  7. 1. How to Create an Art Website
    2. Drawing and Painting Techniques
    17. Art Product Reviews
    Most of the other topics are interesting also, but these are some that would help newbies in the art world

  8. New competitions (a regular email listing events I would pay for, especially if I could make it specific to my type of work or part of the World!) Licensing. Interviews with dealers and collectors. How to close a sale successfully. Art product reviews and portfolio web site reviews - I would happily do the latter for you occasionally and perhaps the former if it did not prove too expensive - I am a sculptor.

  9. @Christina Phillips
    Great!! Thanks for the suggestions! You are welcome to send guest-posts on any of these topics... with no charge.. I'll even include a bio at the end with a link to your site!

  13. @Maria K. Lemming
    Voting is finished.. but thanks for the recommendations!!

  14. I would like you to write about social problems and socially active organizations such as black lives matter move. I recently read an essay about this on This is a very hot topic about which to speculate. Similar problems exist also among people who are engaged in art. Some believe that not everyone has the right to express themselves. I think that any person can see the world as he wants.
