At ArtMarketDirect.com we have a section set aside for ‘Featured Artists’.
The concept behind the informal interview style of the interactions with the Featured Artists is to help collectors read about and form a relationship with the artists; all in pursuance of marrying that perfect piece of art with the collector who wants it.
An unintended consequence of the interviews is that we are able to take a look at all of the wonderful pearls of wisdom in the answers to specific questions and between them, create a wonderful resource for fellow artists to look at, consider and maybe learn from.
So lets take a look at our artists Best Art Tips:

“Be your own advisor, keep your own counsel and select your own decisions.”

Do tonal studies to start with. I see so many promising ideas stranding in the mist of low tonal contrasts, making them disappear. I like to impose a zen koan for beginner artists by asking “what is your original idea that stands out in the crowd?” Or: “How do you want to add value to a beautiful bouquet of flowers or a beautiful face?”

A cliché! Never give up ! It sounds silly but it’s the truth. If you do not give up, you’ll definitely be able to! I also believe that you should always seek a style that is unique, something different from everything and that shows what you want to show! Do not try to copy anything or anyone.

When an artist is satisfied with his painting, it means that he has stopped in his progress.

Once an Art teacher told me that one difficult thing is to find one’s own style; that many artists struggle with that part for many years. He told me that I was lucky because it was kind of easy for me to find my own style. He advised to go with it and just trust my process. That gave me a lot of confidence and after that things starting to go smoothly for me.

A very useful tip is if a canvas has somehow gotten ‘dented’ on the stretcher, whether the piece is started or finished, take a wet sponge and press onto the back of the dent on the reverse of the canvas, allow it to dry naturally (about 10 -15 minutes) and hey presto! the dent has gone!

One of my university professors once told me that a true artist never stops working. Should you stop working, you cease to be an artist. Art is all about creativity and inspiration, but work ethic is extremely important.
