Art blogs come in all shapes and sizes each with a different take on Art and servicing a reader in different ways. Some feature primarily the Author's own work, some show work from a wide variety of Artists. Some happily sit in niches some have a huge remit and try to cater across the board. Some teach you how to paint, some teach you how to sell paintings. Some provide a historical perspective. Others focus on the cutting edge.
These are a selection of the one's I have bookmarked or subscribed to with my reason for keeping an eye on them.
Making A Mark - This site has a broad reach with reviews of exhibitions and business information. My main reason for following this site is it's comprehensive listing of Open Exhibitions.
Bellamy's Bivouac - This blog is a guilty pleasure for me. When I was at home with young children and learning to paint, David Bellamy was my inspiration. He paints the landscapes where we lived and explained his techniques in an uncomplicated way.
