10 Tips for Selling Your Paintings on eBay

By January 3, 2006

Follow me on:

You've heard the rumours about them (or should that be urban legends?), the artists who make their livings solely by selling their paintings on eBay ... how many there truly are and how good a living they make still needs to be quantified. But if you'd like to give it a try, or wish you were more successful selling on eBay, UK artist David Pott, who says he's been selling his work on eBay for 10 months now, has some useful tips from his experiences on his blog, ArtistsAnon: give 10 Tips for Making a Living on eBay a read, as well as 7 Tips on How to Create Art That Sells on eBay.

I know from my own browsing of paintings on eBay that the tip about using bright, vibrant colours is very true -- they're definitely the thumbnails that catch your eye! Though I also find monochromatic paintings stand out. Perhaps because they're a moment's calm in the visual chaos.

This blog dates from 3 January 2006. The artist mentioned must’ve changed his blog/eBay shop, that’s why the links no longer work.
