The old dilemma of always and a question making the artist above all in its infancy. At the art market, galleries and artists priced works based on measures of the frames and the value of the point that the artist has. For example: an artist who has a value per point of 100 euros and want to price a box measures 30F, then its price will be 3,000 euros. In the case of artists that begin, the theme is more complicated because they have not yet had sales, then it is not possible to be guided by the point system. Nor is it good to be guided by prices of other artists, even if they have a path or line of work similar to ours, because it can be that this person is selling, well because he has promoted his work more or because you have had more luck or by whatever. And care with the advice of the kind of raises the price of your works because they have great quality. What can we do then? At the beginning the right thing is to calculate the price based on the cost of the materials employed and the hours that we’ve needed to paint our picture.
In this point is advisable to be very modest. It must be borne in mind that our work is not yet known and that the most interesting, is to make it known, promote us, therefore many more sales better, although revenues are low. Another question also important when upload the prices to my works? Well, in the case that you’ve already had sales congratulations! You have to analyze if those sales are regular and sustained over time, for example, if every month you sell five works and five more the following month and so a year or two, then you can consider uploading your prices, but with prudence, a 10% or 15%. In the event that boost your sales and have more demand than you can produce, then there if you can upload until you see that there is a balance. And finally. Common sense and objectivity when it comes to price our works, is what will help fulfill our expectations.
