Default Liquid Horses-Painting

This is one of my first digital paintings. Was just going though my older stuff to see just how far I've come with painting. It's going not too bad! Thought I'd share this one. Have included the original photo from which I referenced from.

Love your work stitchbabe. But the question I have is how saleable is it? I mean if it was oil or watercolor people will buy that knowing its one of a kind. But digital means there could be countless copies and so down goes the value or respect for the work. Do you sell your work or is it just for your own amusement? Canvas mounting might be a way to make it more saleable but I was just wondering how the world respects digital graphics.

Hi there Bynx!
You know, I'm really not sure how well it would go over selling digital work. I have noticed though that everywhere I go, everyone has digital artwork on their walls. I also frequently go to the framing and arts sections of stores to see what's there. That stuff seems to sell like hotcakes too. I'm thinking it's because it's cheaper to buy a lot of the times compared to buying real media artwork. So, yeah, hard to say how it would go. I've never tried to sell my work. I mostly paint for family, friends and myself. Hope you're doing well and thank you for your comment.

Very creative. To sell them you could make each one a one of a kind by just altering the color or shape a bit. Not difficult to do but it does make it an original.
