CHOOSING PAINTINGS

There is always a 'criteria' for choosing a painting.

It is an exciting business, purchasing a new painting. (I'm not talking copies or prints!)

I suggest the three main reasons people buy art are:

1. As an investment

2. Because you like it

3. Impulse

BUT How do you make choosing a painting successful?

How do you make SURE you are going to like that painting forever?

BUY FINE ART

The most important factor in buying a painting is.........

Buy 'Fine Art' if you want to appreciate the painting FOREVER. look at 'fine art paintings' for more help click

A Fine Art painting fufils three roles

a) An investment

b) A Painting you can look at FOREVER and not be bored with.

c) Painted by a Professional Artist who has been trained and knows their 'stuff'!

A 'Fine Art' painting is a painting that has been created with personality, experience, love, passion, thought and planning.

HAVE A 'COLOUR' IN MIND?

OK! But please = don't just go looking for the colour you have in mind.

Why Not?

Because you will miss all the other exciting art works!

Look at 'Colour' to find out more click

USE YOUR HEART!

NUMBER 1 RULE FOR BUYING A PAINTING

INSTINCT & EMOTIONAL RESPONSE

A great painting should make you feel SOMETHING!!

Just think about YOU when you are buying a painting. How you FEEL about that painting

This is your 'emotional response'

The exciting element of buying a painting is how that painting makes you feel.

Other people may feel differently

It doesn't matter.

Buy that painting which cheers you up. Buy that painting which Intrigues you. Buy that painting which you know you will enjoy FOREVER!!

NOT FROM THE INTERNET

PLEASE don't just 'make life easy for yourself' and buy a painting from the Internet.

Look at it and feel it in real life.

It is worth the effort.

Talk to the artist.

Find out about their motivation, find out about that artist from whom you are buying a little of their personality!!

Don't just buy a print or a famous recognisable copy of a painting.

BE YOU!!

Take a few risks. They will be worth it.

Art enriches your life, especially when you have bought from 'yourself'.

When you have trusted your emotional response and gone with your heart.

IF YOU HAVE TO BUY FROM THE INTERNET

Communicate with the artist or gallery. Ask questions about the artist you like.

Ask any question you want to (as long as it is sensible!)

If you don't get a response from the artist or gallery = move on and find another painting you like.

A great art gallery like ours will always help you find that 'perfect' painting for you.

It doesn't matter if it takes months or even years! We will help find that 'perfect' painting for you!

YOU MIGHT MAKE A MISTAKE IF YOU BUY WITHOUT PHYSICALLY SEEING YOUR ART WORK!!!
