Da Vinci lets you create a responsive magazine website with a sleek, modern design. Feature your favourite homepage content in either a grid or a slider. Use the three widget areas to customize your website, and change your content’s layout with either the default or full-width page template. Creating a magazine website with WordPress has never been easier.
The Da Vinci theme is so flexible and has so many ways it can be used that screenshots are the best way to show you how one theme can have many looks.
All the WordPress artist themes are built on the Parent theme David. You can read about parent – child themes on FAQ. You can purchase David alone or packaged with one of it’s child themes.
I like working with a parent theme because it makes it easy to update the code for all the themes just once. Bonus for me. The BONUS for you is that you get TWO themes, the parent and the child and can chose to activate either one.
Well if you’re an artist you’ve probably already figured that out. I decided to name the themes after famous works of art and artists. David, for example, is named after Michelangelo’s David. Cassatt after artist Mary Cassatt, and so on.

Before you upload any images to your website, embed your copyright and image information into your photos using Photoshop or Photoshop Elements.
By attaching copyrights, image descriptions, your name and or contact info, you are helping to protect your images where ever they go.
Traffic to your site can grow substantially with search engine indexing of your images. The first thing you need to know is that a search engine robot can not see that your image is a landscape, or oil on canvas, you have to tell it with words.
In WordPress, each image you upload to the Media Library offers you the ability to define ALT and TITLE attributes. This provides search engines with text they can read, find and index your images.
