As a working Artist-Painter, I have many years’ experience ( In Ireland and in France) of teaching people how to produce lst class illustrations and paintings – in all fields and in all aspects of drawing and painting mediums and materials.

Although I specialise in one-to-one Professional, Art Personal Tuition, I also hold a number of challenging Open Days (limited to just 4 persons) which comprise a Professional Art Class in the morning and in the afternoon, the students are given the time to unleash their creativity and to create a wonderful  work of art of their own.

INVESTING IN AN ARTWORK.

Whenever I have an exhibition (as at present) or hold an Open Day in my Studio, one question that is invariably asked is ” are the prices negociable”?   And my answer always, is, YES.     The  Artists amongst you, know, of course, that Artists put a huge amount of time and effort into their artwork but that it is very difficult to quantify in monetary terms, this creative effort.

However, being a pragmatist (and ever optimist…) I realize, that although a work of art may well be worth the figure asked, the buyer, although he or she really wants that artwork, may genuinely not have that asking price available to them, so compromise, within reason,  is a sensible attitude to have towards the sale price.

I feel you will agree that it is better to make a sale and have a happy Client than to make no sale at all.

Some Artists will not agree with me, of that I am certain, but from experience, I have often sent a Client home, delighted with their purchase (and sale

 price ) 0f MY artwork, and  in fact, such sales have resulted in further sales, simply because I am always open to discuss  the price of my work.     Here in France the term “a debattre” is used to cover this transaction and indeed, debating a price (haggling if you like) is extremely popular and leaves both parties satisfied with the result.

So in future when you see a work you really like, but are a little “shy” of the money asked, please contact the Artist, etc., concerned:  the outcome could well enhance your, and that Artists’ life!.
