Art Prints: How To Make Different Prints From One Painting

In April I wrote a blog post titled "Art Photography:  How To Use One Image To Make Different Prints."  The same concept can be applied to using a single painting to make different prints.  Ever create a painting and wonder how it would look--or sell--in a different palette?  Here is where you can experiment inexpensively.  And if the print doesn't sell--or doesn't sell well--you won't be left with extra stock.
 
My original painting--Of Indigo and Copper--was done in an inky blue and copper palette and was only 6" x 6":
 
On a whim, I began to play with the color adjustment in PhotoShop. 
 

 
 
 
 
 
And for those who prefer the more traditional red heart...
 
I recommend always photographing (or scanning) your original artwork as a large high resolution file so you have the option to offer prints in a range of sizes.  This Heart A Flutter print series is offered as 13" x 13" fine art giclee prints--double the size of the original artwork.  And I have the option to print them at other sizes as well.
 
Pull your art into your digital studio and experiment.  You may find not only find a whole new world, but discover an additional income stream as well!
