Here's a clip from Robert and Kate's DVD, Making Money With Your Art


We're at burning question number 5 now and I have to tell you this is one of the most popular ones that we get. It's how do I know what to charge for various sizes of paintings?
Big question, a good question, I'm going to so you some techniques that work for us. First of all you should ask yourself, Do you want to sell your artwork? That's probably the most important question isn't it.
Some people don't and that's fine, they're doing it just for fun and then they're some people that actually want to make al living selling their artwork. Some of the younger people at the colleges we teach at will come yup to me and I love this question, they'll say Mr Burridge you're selling all your paintings and you're making all this money aren't you selling out. And I'll say no, I'm cashing in. It's a big difference.
This is a business and we produce a product as Kate had mentioned and there's that P word, and it is a product and what you have to do is divorce yourself from your creation. How do you put a price tag on your children so to speak, OK.
So the first thing you should do, once you decide you want to sell your work, is compare your work with all the others out there that are selling. A good way to do that is go to art galleries, festivals and outdoor shows and look at the ones that are selling and say, yeah my work is pretty good, I think I could be competitive I think it would sell.
So you have to be honest with yourself. Look at your work in the cold hard commercial light. Is it something someone would really want to buy?
Also think about your market. Are they young or old, well educated, wealthy. So you analyze your market as best you can. It's kind of hard to put a figure on it exactly but at least you have addressed the question to yourself. I mean do you do young hip pop types of things, but do you have a very specific market out there?
