I've been selling a lot of things on ebay in the last two months but none of it has been art and I'd like to start. I normally work on commission so I don't have a lot of spare paitnings lying around (although I am working on fixing that). Do I paint what I love (animals) and sell that? Any idea on prices? please help lol
Thanks

What I love about ebay is you can sell what you love to paint!!! At least that is what I have found. I have done commissions too, and feel that the freedom of painting what I want and selling it on ebay is soooo much more enjoyable!!!

Yes paint your animals! People seem to really love animal paintings on ebay so you should do well.

As far as pricing I would suggest you go and look at the discussion where everyone put their ebay id and go check out their prices. As has been mentioned in other threads, you may have to start out low in the beginning but once you get a following your prices go up. There is a lot of discussion about pricing so just look through the threads.

Good luck!
