By the way, about prices. As a complete unknown I’ve just had an expert tell me I should charge about €150 for my 45cm square pieces, €180 for the 60cm square ones and about €230 for the 90cm squared. This shocked me as it seems very low, but she said one of the biggest mistakes new artists make is charging too much and not getting any sales. What do y’all think?
I'm tempted to make them a bit more expensive nevertheless, as I'm paying for nine small canvases to make each picture instead of one (each of my paintings is painted on 9 small square canvases to make one big square), and the special frame needed for each one costs between €60 and €120. Or maybe I'm again falling into the charging too much syndrome all beginners apparently make.
Is it better to sell for very little but have the satisfaction of actually making sales and feeling 'validated' as an artist (as well as recuperating costs into the bargain)? I'd appreciate some feedback from people who have already been through this process, cheers!
