How to Paint Art That Sells and Make Money From Art
Would you like to make money from your art but don't know where to start?
Many people love creating artworks and would love to turn this into a career, business or an extra source of income but just don't know where to start, or simply don't believe it is possible to make money as an artist. The truth is that there almost unlimited ways you can make money from your artworks.
Making it as an artist selling your artworks through galleries might be a tough market to crack but the truth is there are many other ways you can make money as an artist and you don't need to be a Michelangelo to get started.
These days printing technology enables your artworks to be replicated onto a wide array of products that can be sold again and again, rather than selling a one off original artwork. The possibilities are almost endless! And what is even better, you don't need to make or print the products yourself in order to sell your artworks!
So What Type of Products Could I Sell?
There are so many possibilities and once you start looking you will notice opportunities everywhere. Here are some ideas to get you started:
Where Would I Sell My Art Products?
If you are reading this and thinking... "well that's all good, but how would I actually sell these products?"... well guess what? Yet again there are hundreds of possibilities available and the rise of eCommerce is making it easier and easier to get your designs out into the marketplace and into customers hands than ever before.
There are numerous platforms available now that allow you to upload your artworks to their sites and they will sell products printed with your artworks through their platform, printing your artwork onto the product and shipping it directly to the customer without you having to do a thing, paying you a commission for the sale!
Of course there are many other ways to sell your products too, for example you could go the traditional route and have products manufactured for you with your own artworks printed on them and sell them either through other retailers, create your own store (either online or bricks and mortar), markets, party plan and more.
Or perhaps you are considering a career as a textile designer or surface designer.
Am I Good Enough To Sell My Art?
Maybe you enjoy painting and drawing but aren't confident that you're good enough to actually sell your work. The good news is that when you put your artworks onto products the designs can be anywhere from simple to advanced. Your artworks can be abstract or realistic and you can create designs to suit all different age groups and tastes.
