Selling Your Artwork Using Images And Words

There is no denying that artists happen to be some of the most creative bunch of people you will come across. However, when the entire landscape is so saturated, going ahead and calling yourself an artist is not something that is surprising to a lot of people. Keeping that in mind, the right thing to do in a situation like that is standing out from the rest because your work might not be able to represent the way you want it to represent you.

If you are thinking about selling your artwork, simply putting it up on the internet, or an art gallery is simply not going to be enough because it might lead to no sales at all, and you might have to wait a long time before a potential buyer comes up.

This is where you use your artistic abilities for your advantage. You are an artist, and using images, and words is a great way to sell your artwork with ease.

In this article, we are going to explore how you can do that.

Use Creative Titles And Descriptions

As a photographer, every time I take a photo, I use a single word that I associate the most with it. The word can be anything ranging from feeling, or just a word that in my mind, describes that picture. Artists have the license to say a lot of things. If you are an artist, no matter what artwork you are selling, do not just go ahead and call it “original” because that is the least original thing you can do.

Instead, make use of creative titles and descriptions in order to make the artwork look more authentic, original, and something that can intrigue people.

Use Multiple Images

If you are putting your artwork up for sale, and you want to share a few images of the artwork, do not just take a single picture of the canvas and try to sell it. Instead, use multiple images, preferably showing the artwork from different angles, and different perspectives. You want to be able to capture the perspective of the potential buyer, remember?

Social Media is Great

The sad part about most of the modern day artists is that they think of social media as a thing or an entity that should not exist. This is not something that happens to be an ideal choice because it could lead to some discrepancies that we really do not want to go through with.

If you are trying to sell your artwork, make use of social media as much as possible. There are so many forums and websites that are dedicated to artists selling their art with ease. Why not go ahead and utilize all that for the sake of selling what you wish to sell.

Write About Yourself

Do not leave the “about me” section empty, you ought to be able to give some insight to the readers because if you can’t, then it won’t be much, to begin with.
