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.
I now have Heart A Flutter in green...
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!
