Helpful Art Links

Hey there! Are you an artist looking for links to resources that could help you be better at doing that voodoo that you do do? No worries then – I will be sharing what I learn here so we can all grow together. Like a family. A family of trees. A family of Artistic trees

And as you create work for your exhibition, perhaps also consider submitting the same work to competitions like this and this

I happily found Margaret Peot’s work while looking for resources to teach me how to create inkblots. She has a Youtube channel up to teach this and also her own site that’s pretty amazing.
