How to Make a Painter a Painting Pricing?

Paintings pricing is one of the most complex tasks that emerging artists are faced with. Especially when they start to work with galleries and start to build art works.

Basic Rules

1. Works Emotional Valuation Error

One of the biggest mistakes is giving your emotional value more than you need to work. To make it even more complicated, we price our emotions with our emotions. Some artists exaggerate their efforts to influence the audience, hoping to see their work more valuable. This can only mean something if the work is really perfect. In other cases the work is not taken seriously by the audience. At this point, ask yourself the following question: If someone does not recognize this work, will you buy it?

When you price with emotion, prices tend to fall. No one wants to overpay. You are an amateur painter, the buyer price does not get serious. In other words, I have to look at objective sales for pricing. What should be the price to sell manuscripts? Do not enter the price too high to sell.

2. Knowing that you are an exaggerated praise and considering yourself an important artist

This is an important question in front of personal development. The important thing is that those who do not know you need to wonder who you are when you see your work. The real world is cruelly criticized.

 3. Price Determination Technique to Sell Paintings

There is a simple formula that puts emotions on the edge and some of the professional artists use when they start to sell their works. Do not forget that your pricing reflects your position and prestige in the art more than your art. First of all, you are not an unknown artist and you have never been in big art organizations. You will never get the same prices as real artists. Do not forget that you have to work for years.

4. Determining the Price of the First Time Paintings

When you start selling works for the first time, it is a good idea to make your business as economical as possible, since you can cover your costs and make a small profit. Even if you have a lot of money, care about it. The important thing is to keep working. Sales should at least be thought of as meeting your material cost. For an amateur painter to think that you can easily earn money from this work is because there is no experience in the sector. Remember that the galleries usually receive 50 percent commission from sales, so you should take this into account.

5. You should not make a pricing over your career because your drawing looks beautiful

The artifact value is the speculative value, which determines the value of the artist's career artifact. The piece that is beautiful by itself is invaluable. This is the main fallacy of beginners. In a simple sense, you have done a good job, but a few brush strokes of a famous painter can be millions of times more valuable than your work. What is valuable here is not a painting, but a career. So you have to work hard and characterize your paintings. So you have to create a style. Vincent van Gogh has sold a single painting throughout his short life. Nevertheless, van Gogh, however, has over 2000 artifacts until he was 35 years old.

6. In your profile you should write your own career CV formally

Arthipo is a structural shopping site and you should remember that it is not exactly a social network. Customers want to know everything about the painting and artist they buy. In your profile, you should write your own career in CV form. You absolutely must add the profile photo. Because selling a table is also a career selling. Avoid conflicting and false information. In the pictures you add, it is useful to include a few sentences of promotional notes on technique and genre.

Reference Calculation for Paintings Pricing

First, select a coefficient that describes you. You must be sincere in choosing the coefficient. Avoid lying to yourself. Remembering to know your level is the right approach to improve you.

Calculate the area of ​​residence. Multiply its length by its width. Then, multiply this number by the adjusted amount in accordance with your artist career.

For Dolar Calculation

0.04 = Beginner's level, Hobby

0.07 = Amateur Painter

0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.4, 0.5, 0.6, 0.7, 0.8 = Becoming Master Artist (also included in exhibitions, personal or mixed, be news local or national media.)

0.9, 1 and above are the coefficients that professional painters can use.

Example 1
Beginner's level, Hobby For a painter, the price of 50x70 cm = 3500 cm square is 3500 x 0.04 = 140 Dolar, which is the average value. The price of this work can range from 30 to 100.

Example 2: Amateur Painter Level For a painter, the price of 50x70 cm = 3500 cm square is 3500 x 0.07 = 245 Dolar, which is the average value. The price of this work can range from 30 to 170 Dolar.
