Life Drawings for Sale & Suggestions Taking Care of Original Art

0082

If you’ve been to my website in this past year, you will be familiar with these. This is my life drawing works from the past year. I’m looking to sell the ORIGINALS. If you’re interested in buying any of these (or any art for that matter), use this contact form on my site.

Here are prices, which DO NOT include shipping. When contacting me, be prepared to give me your address so I can calculate shipping and bill an all inclusive invoice. The paired images – I suggest you buy them together as a set because they go together, and I will prioritize people who want to buy sets.

About the work

Originals are all on 9″x12″ watercolour paper done with fade proof watercolours. They are unframed– BUT you can find inexpensive frames of these dimensions in most stores for very, very cheap (Amazon – $5-10). It’s not worth getting custom framing for this unless you’re going all the way and getting these vacuum sealed with UV protected glass. I suggest a slightly larger white frame for the lighter pieces, and a larger dark frame for ones with more black.

Here are a few quicker sketches. These have more irregular dimensions and might need to be trimmed down, but they are all done on the same paper with the same watercolours. These would be nice pieces for small area decorations, like a small bathroom or space in the kitchen.

Taking care of the work

Since this is generally useful to know…
Do not:
  • Place near a window where the work will be hit with direct sunlight for the majority of the day. The paints and paper will lose longevity, and will likely discolour.
  • Place in humid places or places where the humidity changes frequently – this will result in warping of the paper.
  • Do not hang with tacs, wall tacky, pins, sticky non-acid free tape – you will permanently damage the work, which is horrible if you plan to resell it.
  • Do not hang with earth magnets for long periods (years) – believe it or not, gravity will warp the paper and it will sag.
To store artwork, you can keep it in the plastic I provide or buy a little weather proofed portfolio case. I really suggest putting it in something to protect artwork from physical damage, air pollution, humidity, mold, insects, cats, ect..
The best framing you can possibly get creates an air tight seal and has UV protected glass. Now, that is extremely expensive however and it`s your choice.
Purchasing originals are physical art objects does not transfer copyrights. If you’re interested in this, you need to pay the copyright fees as well and have a signed agreement by me. Therefore, don’t try to use this as your own work after purchasing it or using it for other commercial reasons.
