  1. You know, brother-artist, in this case, very few people will advise you specifically and useful. Dealers have their own interests, experts have their own, and they don't really coincide with yours…

    You can focus on a certain mythical “market”, for which you will have a lot of people “rub”, but art is such a thing… In general, in the normal economic sense ,there is no” market ” in this area. So, stories about him are “fairy tales for artists”.

    Yes, yes, our brother is “fed” a lot of fairy tales. And the fact that, they say, the artist is still poor. And the fact that the artist owes something to something or someone. And what… In general, a lot of things.

    In short, while your name itself is worthless, it is better to do so:

    Set the price that you will not be sorry to give up for good. Estimate your labor costs, materials (yes, they are not cheap now…), time costs, and what you need to eat, drink, move around, live somewhere, and pay bills while working. So include all this in the cost of your work. And this will be the lower level of its value, for which you do not fall. If you expect that the buyer will bargain (yes, now there are also such “beaten off to the whole head”), then first raise the price so that there is somewhere to go down.

    Good luck!

  2. One of the options:

    1. Calculate the area of the work, for example, the size of the canvas 30X40=1200r – your work can not cost less
    2. If you use additionally expensive materials: stones, potal, imitation gold, silver, epoxy resin, protective coating, etc., add their cost
    3. Estimate the cost of your labor per hour, calculate the time spent on your work. Add it to your account.
    4. If you actively participate in exhibitions, multiply by the factor x1, 1
    5. If you are investing in ongoing training, multiply by another 1.1
    6. If you spend money on promotion and marketing, consider these expenses. Try to calculate the cost of marketing for the sale of one painting
  3. A painting by any artist, even the most talented, is a commodity, an intellectual product. Accordingly, the market for artistic works has long been established. In order to understand how much your work costs, try to find works similar to yours in online galleries – this will be a rough estimate of your work.�

  4. Evaluate then you are entitled to as much as you want, but the question is whether they will buy. Alas, the art market in our country is unkind to artists, especially those who do not yet have a well-known name. You can try it from online auctions, for example. But be mentally prepared for disappointment in the final price. There are far fewer art lovers who are willing to pay good money than artists who write decent works.

  5. Being creative and selling at the same time is a difficult task. We can advise you to register on our online painting sales website. Set the price yourself by viewing works in the same style and genre. Upload photos of the paintings and wait for your buyer. We wish you creative success!

  6. No way.

    It will be evaluated not by you, but by others.

    And yes, as someone has already correctly written here, it is a difficult task to engage in creativity and sales at the same time.

    Although, you will succeed!)
