Original Watercolor Paintings for Sale and How to Display Them

“Draw the art you want to see, start the business you want to run, play the music you want to hear, write the books you want to read, build the products you want to use – do the work you want to see done.”
― Austin Kleon, Steal Like an Artist: 10 Things Nobody Told You About Being Creative

So here I am. I finally completed 12 botanical paintings that are for sale. It was an exciting process of finding the subjects that appeal to me. I have to paint what I like because if these paintings will not end up in somebody else’s home, I am keeping them and I will still be happy.  I find joy in the creative process but the business side of it is what I dread most. What do I know about selling? Nothing. However, these words spoke to me.

“Don’t wait until you know who you are to get started.”

“Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.”– Gail Devers,  three-time Olympic champion in track-and-field.

Seeing the paints, brushes, paper and other materials I have to buy to continue doing what I love is my motivation. Ha! So I am now putting my paintings for sale on my Facebook page. These are all botanical watercolor done using artist-grade watercolor and 140 lb. hot-pressed watercolor paper in A3 size (11.7″ x 16.5″). I used Holbein for the watercolor and Daler-Rowney for the paper. All the paintings in this set are in landscape orientation but there are some paintings that still look okay when displayed in portrait orientation.

I am selling these paintings unframed because it is easier to ship them that way. The paintings will be shipped from the Philippines. When a painting is unframed, the client has the option to choose the right frame that will match the interiors where the the painting will be displayed.  I suggest that the painting be framed in a glass to protect the painting from dust and water.  For those who do not want the glare of the glass in a painting, there is always the non-reflective glass but it may cost a little more.  One can go a step further by using a conservation glass with UV protection against harmful rays.

To help you visualize how the paintings will look like in frames, I made the mock-ups below.

I have taken a step further by putting the paintings in an interior scene so you can better visualize where to possible display them in your space.

I hope I have convinced you enough to brighten up your walls with my paintings. You can have a closer look at my paintings in my Facebook page.  Message me there for details.
