At the bottom of this form - Artwork Listing Keywords Form - you will find the question... "Is this image available for sale as an original?
If you click yes, you will be taken to a second page where you can provide all the necessary details.
Listing your original artwork on our site is easy if you follow these guidelines.
- Your primary photo of the artwork should be just the art - no frame, no you, just the best possible image of the artwork itself. You've already got that with the image we created for you when we copied your work.
- You should include several other images showing the artwork complete, especially if it has a frame! If it is framed, photograph it on the wall, have you, or someone as good looking as you, stand beside the art, or hold it to show a sense of scale.
- If the artwork is textured, show a close-up of that texture.
- Go into detail about the framing - colour, style, does it have museum glass?
This piece by Kevan Rigby is obviously quite large and beautifully framed. This is Kevan's description...
"90 x 125cm - This watercolour painting on Arches 640 gsm watercolour paper is framed in a quality Italian frame which has elements that match the colours in the work. It has two, inner, slip frames, which supports the magnitude of the work. It is framed using museum glass, which protects the painting from uv rays and is complemented by neutral tone, acid free, double mattes."
Ah, OK, now I understand why it will cost me $12,500 for this piece - bargain!
You need to provide the descriptive words that you would use if you were face to face with a prospective buyer. Selling online is harder because you can't see the buyer and gauge their emotional attachment to the work. You have to encourage and evoke feelings in them that encourage them to buy!
Your descriptions and explanations should create a burning desire in the right person so they can't wait to click "Add to Cart".
