“How did you do that?” has been our guiding motto since the very early days of this magazine. In fact, it is printed out and on our wall for us to see every day. It is the simple idea that launched this magazine as well as the one that keeps us going well into the future. Artists want to see other work by artists, and when they see such work they typically want to know how it was created. That is where International Artist comes into the picture.
There is another thing we are fascinated with. And that is a little beyond this simple question of how. It is with what? What materials did you use? What brushes? What paints? What pigments? What canvas? What palette? What easel? In fact, when we are invited into an artist’s studio, one of the first things we do is look at the materials strewn about to see what products helped in the creation of each particular piece.
We are doing more and more with materials these days. Have a favorite? Please email us and let us know. Send us a high-resolution photo of your working studio and you at the easel and let us know what materials are close at hand. And, of course, look for more on this topic in the pages of this magazine. P.S. Did you know that International Artist is also available in complete digital format through our app?
