Top explanations why it’s so hard to sell your art
There’s a reason why the art thief is rapidly becoming an overused Hollywood trope; artworks can be that expensive, and there are people who buy them. Whether it was a digital painting, or a hand-drawn artwork, selling an artwork can get you quite a fortune.
As a rule of thumb, most painters are used to replicating or reproducing their art digitally to sell more copies. Regardless of what the situation was, if you’re having a hard time selling your art, it’s about time you check whether these reasons are familiar to you.
Your collection is not of a wide variety, and don’t stick to a style
If you paid attention to the artwork by renowned artists like Vincent Van Gogh, you’d notice that his art pieces were quite different from one another. But along with that difference, he managed to develop his own signature painting style. Thus, anyone can immediately know whether a certain painting was done by Gogh. While you may not have international recognition as a painter, your buyers won’t be interested in paying big bucks to everyday average paintings; it’s about time you draw with variety and with your own style.
You always stick to a regular print size
Have you ever looked up at a shelf in a mall and wished if there were larger sizes of food packets? If a person is willing to pay for artwork, they’re most likely to be prepared to spend handsomely. But problems arise when you’re giving them an A4 when the design is done for an A0. That’s why you should consider enlarging the size.
The differencein the color palettes from the original
If you’ve drawn the artwork digitally, or if you’re planning to scan your artwork to reproduce it, there’s no doubt that you advertised the original piece online. In doing so, you were able to showcase all the details, and just how vivid and enriched the colors in the palette really are. But there’s one crucial thing you must know. It’s the inability of domestic and commercial printers to grasp complex color patterns.
If your customers saw that there was even the tiniest difference of the colors compared to the original, they’re going to know that you made the wrong decision. That wrong decision gives them the upper hand to bargain. This is where the technology of fine art printing comes into play.
Designed specially to understand and print complex color patterns without harming the original quality at all, these sophisticated museum-grade printers use the best canvases or papers depending on your preference. The presence of advanced ICC profiled, and industry-level monitor calibration preserves the colors and that would show the true elegance of your artwork.
You’re selling at the wrong venue
The volume of the crowd doesn’t always mean increased selling opportunities; the crowd should be relevant as well. Hence, you must ensure that you’re enrolling yourself in events where people with an artistic sense would show up. That coupled with proper marketing beforehand would surely help you make better sales.
