When you’re buying art, remember the following helpful tips:
It Has To Be Your Decision
It is your house, your walls and your eyes which will look at the piece of art that you purchase, so make sure that the final decision is yours. Getting input from a third party is definitely advised, but when you buy art online, it has to ultimately be your decision.
Research the Artist
Buying any art, especially canvas art from Australian artists on the Sunshine Coast, is a fantastic investment alongside being a beautiful addition to your home. In order to get the quality that you desire from your decorative canvas, researching the artist is key. Find a style you like, then find out as much as you can before making the final purchase. Knowing the artist, how they work and the tell-tale signs of their style will allow you to ensure that you are buying a real piece of art as opposed to a fake.
Buy From a Trusted Source
Buying from a trusted source is vital and the top tip on this list. When buying from a trusted source, you not only receive exactly what was described online, but you often get a guarantee and can be sure that you are spending your hard-earned money on the best possible product. Paying through PayPal or via a credit card for purchases over $100 will give you an extra layer of protection as the buyer.
Original or Reproduction?
Finding out whether a piece of art is an original or a reproduction is key to your future investment. It is not a bad thing if the canvas art is a reproduction, but it is important to be aware that this will affect the possible resale price; it is also worth researching how many copies were made as less reproductions available will make the piece more sought after.
Adjust the Monitor for the Truest Colour
You may not even realise, but if the colour on your computer screen isn't at its peak, then you may have a big surprise when you receive your piece of art and it's a different shade to what you were expecting. By adjusting the colour on your monitor, you will get exactly what you expect to receive.
