Anyone try selling their work? Curious about selling prices. I haven't tried hardly at all, but recently I'm beginning to put a few up for sale on a few web sites. Don't want to sell too liittle, or too high.
The moment you find yourself mostly satisfied with a painting and think you'll "just quickly" do this or that, that's the moment to stop completely. Take the painting off your easel and put it aside for at least 24 hours, then reassess whether it really needs that tweak.

It is hard business. So much back end work.
Have you followed Nolan's Hobby Into Business course? It is really great, so much to learn. There is an entire module about pricing.


For me at this stage have not had any luck so far with my salea, but I am still building up stock.

Re; assessment.  You can (when touch dry) coat the work in Liquin.  Once it dries you can try your 'tweak'.  If it works-great.  If not, you can wipe it off.
