Hello everyone!

I m just a beginner. I did learn this from an online source.

Would just like to know how much would it cost if I want to sell it.

Is it perfect or should any changes be made?

Would appreciate.

Thank you!

Welcome to the forum Crisha - I've straightenedyour work and cropped out the extra background as work is better presented when photo'd straight on and with nothing to distract.:)
So here we can appreciate it better. :)

First, your work is worth whatever someone else is prepared to pay! Many of us who have painted for many years still often have debates about pricing - it depends on the market you aim for as well as the quality of the work.

Don't know which painter you followed for this but if you want to give a realistic impression of, say, a tree you need to LOOK at it carefully and see how it is formed, how the light hits it, how 3dimensional it is etc.

You're just starting, so be prepared to practise a LOT, (we all still need to do this), experiment with your materials to learn what they'll do for you and look at what other artists do.

We have lots of Classroom threads in the Information Kiosk here (http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/01-May-2018/30494-2063452-20180425_111947-1.jpg) which I hope you might find helpful and we also run a monthly challenge in the forum, called Different Strokes, and May's challenge is here (http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1447106) - it would be nice to have you join us!:)

You can add some layers of color to the tree trunk and ground.
Even when a scene is back lit a bit of color can show so it doesn't feel like flat black

Hi Maureen

Thanks so much for your appreciation and guidance.

I will followup on what u said..I feel so calm being in this group. Its my first time to be on online group. Secondly its my first time painting which I have done without any degrees or courses. But I always loved to draw. I feel "I M AN ARTIST" I am praising my ownself. Thanks to the lovely feedback comments.

I will try to join the may challenge. If I am not wrong correct me.
I have to paint one of the pictures on sin...right.

Thanks once again!

It's beautiful Chrisha. Some people price paintings by the size per square inch (cm) I like how you silhouetted the grasses.

Some very nice work here. It is quite striking with the silhouette shapes.

I'm glad you decided to join us in the Vermeer challenge.

Nice tree, love the colors.
Selling depends on your area and getting your works out there to be seen.

as Maureen pointed out, pricing depends on your market and your marketing....talk with the prospective buyers, tell them about the painting, if they are from London, then it could possibly be a location in London, if from Edinburg, it's could possibly be a location in Edinburg, etc.,;) once you are established and your work appears in books, magazines, vacation guides, covers, etc., the prices escalate :thumbsup:

best of luck to you...work hard, market your art and who knows what will happen...:confused: :wave:
