You just sold one. I would never have known about it unless you posted about it here. Just keep mentioning that you paint whenever you can - who knows what might happen.

Your stuff is good.

I'd suggest pushing your prices up, and making the sizes bigger.
More like £100 for a 16" x 20" print possibly - or just sell originals.

There are not that many real buyers of art, and they aren't going to be that price sensitive.
You can put off the real buyers by having prices too low.


[I only sold two prints last year, so my advice might not be worth much!]
It's not Fine Art just because it's in Black and White.

- for one of mine PRINT ONLY 6"x6" £35-45 depending on the edition size (max of 150)

And double ditto about the low price, there is a degree when the price is too low and people won't look at it or take you seriously, Hence why I'd shy away from selling limited editions on ebay.

selling art is mainly about the product and the consumer, make sure your product is good, printed well, framed well (and i do mean well, get rid of those range frames) and then figure out where to sell it, a greasy spoon cafe not so much, a nice hotel or decent gallery is a way better place

ideally somewhere that's relevant to the art

price it so it's worth something rather than £35 and it's got a larger chance of selling imho
