I’ve just deleted most of this post and am starting again.
I have been thinking about pricing paintings for the Christmas Market.
I need to be mentally prepared for people to offer me half of the price I am asking.
It’s very discouraging.
I like to think it has nothing to do with the standard of my painting . Sometimes that is difficult to do.
I think maybe I will make my prices higher so that even with a discount I get a reasonable price.
I have looked at comparable work online , but no one here would pay these prices.
I think I need a plan.
The portrait is nearly finished. I am enjoying painting it in a relaxed manner.
And today I finished another watercolour.
Just spent a couple of hours with a friend. It’s nice to drink wine and chat. I hope we can carry on meeting up all winter.
Making carrot chips tonight.
