When it comes to selling your art online, photography is super important as it may be your first introduction to a potential client. We came across his gorgeous shot by @almaramirez_art and thought the way her painting is styled on the grey background really makes it pop!πŸ’– - We have a new post packed full of tips on photographing your art (link in bioπŸ‘†) but wanted to share a few here too ---> - 1.) Light is key! Try to shoot in bright natural light to capture the true details and colours of your work. - 2) If selling online, try to get a few different types of shots for your website, after all, potential buyers love to see the close-ups and all the details of your work, especially if they have not had the opportunity to see it in person. - 3) Get the styled shot. Not only do gorgeous styled shots look great on your website and Instagram feed, they really do give potential buyers an idea of the scale of your work as well as how it may look in their home. - πŸ’₯TIPπŸ’₯You can purchase some pretty cool stock photos of styled settings where you can drop in a photo of your artwork, both iStock and Shutterstock have a good collection. Alternatively, there are some cool tools like @iartview that allow you to preview your art on a wall. - Check out our full post on how to photograph your artwork like a pro on creativefounders.com (link in bio! πŸ‘†) - - - #creativebusiness #arthomepage #artbusiness #arts_help #art_empire #artphotography #creativityinspired

Came across this illustration by Adelaide artist @petaalannahart and it immediately drew us in. Love how she uses simple lines and minimal colour, yet still manages to create such a super feminine, flirty and slightly mysterious piece. πŸ’•πŸ’• . . #flashesofdelight #creativepreneur #liveauthentic #communityovercompetition #makeart #contemporaryart #creativityinspired #lifeofanartist #livecreatively #art #artists #artistslife #artistsofig #calledtocreate #supportlocalart #inspiredbyyou #mycreativebiz #doitfortheprocess #artbiz #artistsofig #contemporaryartist #localartists #artstudent #neverstoplearning #art_empire #artschool #handcraft #arts_help #artlife
