Pictures with very good oil technical a higher price?


I know, higher known artists get a higher price. But what is, when a oil picture have very good effects (ex. Mona Lisa, or others effects with deepth, brilliant and so on). The artist is unkown, but take very high quality paintings of unkown painters very high prices, or a little higher price only then abstract paintngs of other unkown?

Re: Pictures with very good oil technical a higher price?

I think what you are really talking about is not technique but style. Some buyers are willing to pay more for photographic works. Others don't care about that. From what I have seen, the less sophisticated the buyer, the more they value a photographic style. However, people with a lot of money often are pretty sophisticated and don't believe that a photographic style painting or a so-called Old Master style is better, more valuable art. To a lot of them, that looks stuffy or artificial. So it's a tossup.

I think you have to paint how you should paint. It looks to me like there are markets for all sorts of styles. So choose a style you like and explore it fully until your own style emerges.
