Good morning everyone,
I’m really pleased with these artistic offerings! They are the continuation of my previous post. As I mentioned in that post, finding a way for Watercolours to work for me hasn’t been easy – I think this is mostly because my experiences with Watercolours have been painting landscapes and trying to get things to look ‘realistic’ which is infinitely harder for me than finding ways to represent my ideas in a ‘broken down’ and more abstract/suggestive way.
I feel like doing a bit of a series of these and I think they would make really nice greetings cards. So I’m going to be looking into doing something like that with them. Maybe get a few different styles of cards and see how they look. Of course, this does bring out the usual stumbling block concerns for me. ‘How much do I sell them for? Do people guy greetings cards online? Where should I sell them? Should I try?’
I have this little ‘dream’ where I have a stall somewhere and sell to people face-to-face. Of course, I have limitations to this ‘dream’ right now as I am bringing up my son, but a weekend stall would be nice. So, I am thinking at the moment I have to stick to doing things online.
How does everyone know what to do when it comes to the ‘business’ aspect of their artwork? It’s the hardest part when compared to the creation of the artworks!
All I know is that I am being a bit overwhelmed by all the finished paintings I now have in the house and I should free up some space somehow!
While I was looking for some Watercolour paper, I found some little canvas boards, which is great as I thought I had ran out of canvas’ to experiment on. They’re only small, but I think some of the seashells and other objects I found in Sutton-on-Sea would work really nicely on them – so while I deliberate the questions I have about the cards, I shall do something with these small canvas.
I think this is the other issue I have with selling artwork. I don’t have one ‘thing’ that I could sell. I am a multi-potential artist. So many different focus’ under the umbrella of art.
