Sell More Art with High-Quality Images
The internet has made it easy for artists to set up an online art gallery to showcase their work to the world. With every positive there is a negative.
Art is purchased because someone became connected with a piece of art. It could be the colors, the art style, the subject, the buyer has a connection with the artist, or it tells a story that the buyer can relate to.
There is a big difference seeing art in person and seeing art online.
When you see art in person, you can see the true colors and texture of the piece. You can see how the artwork reacts to the light. The art is probably displayed on a wall already framed.
If you see art online, you will not be able to visualize the size of the art. The colors might be different depending on the monitor. Some of the texture will be lost. You will not be able to see the art up close and farther away.
So how can you give the viewer a true feel for your artwork without them being able to hold it in their hands?
- Provide high-quality images.
- Take several different photos of your work.
- Use different lighting.
- Use natural light.
- Offer up-close images to show the texture.
- Scan your work if possible.
- Retake the photos if they are not close to the original art.
- Hire a professional photographer.
- Show images of the art framed.
- Show the art hanging on a wall with something next to it so the viewer can get a feel for the size.
