art and painting headlines

Here are some arty things on the web I've found interesting recently:

Painting 150 foot mural for The Hobbit, which it involves the use of a traditional cartoon. Great photos of it as work-in-progress.

How to Photograph Your Paintings for those really serious about getting good results

How to make one great painting explained in pictures rather than words. (It's so true!)

UK National Collection: all 212,000 oil paintings online (and the image illustrating the news is a young Sean Connery working as a life model!)

• From Science Daily: Why We Crave Creativity but Reject Creative Ideas which helps explain why being seen as creative can be accompanied by hostility. (Thanks to Yover for sending me this link.)

Brooklyn Nude Figure Drawing starting January. I regularly get people looking for a life session or model for their art group, so do email me links I can refer people too!

2013 Canadian Portrait Award

International Linocut Competition

• Behind the Scenes: Conserving a Pollock Painting at MoMA

• And, lastly, a Simple Productivity Tip from Da Vinci*

*Disclosure: I write an occasional blog for Artist Daily.
