Over the course of thousands of years original oil paintings have always been regarded as a prized possession by any art fanatic. From the auction house to famous art galleries, to online art retailers oil paintings have always been an extremely popular choice, which are often bought and treasured by families for hundreds of years.
Online canvas art stores have made fine art more readily available to the average consumer; no longer is collecting art an exclusive hobby for those privileged enough to be an active member of the elite art circuit.
Before making the decision as to what oil paintings or canvas wall art you should buy, there are a few things you will need to think about before making your final decision.
- Decide upon which room you want to hang the canvas art, be it one with an oil paintings effect or a piece of Banksy artwork. Rooms which are very minimalist in design, in a pale neutral colour suit bright pieces of artwork. Whereas rooms which contain lots of ornate furnishings and are decorated in a bright colour scheme should have artwork which is simple hung on the walls. Simple designs will not compete for attention, are more easy going on the eye and will not take the focus away from your favourite pieces of furniture.
- Pick the subject of your artwork carefully- for a family room such as the dining room or the living room why not utilise Red Art’s service printing photos on canvas whereby you can have your favourite family snaps printed onto canvas. These make a wonderful addition to any family home. Alternatively, if you are looking for art to hang in a study then a still life painting may be a better choice.
- Make a note of where you plan to hang the piece of artwork so that you know what size to choose. Large open rooms, with a spacious feel and lots of floor space suit artwork featuring a beautiful, expansive landscape. Small rooms, with lots of clutter such as bookshelves suit portraits much better than scenic pictures.
- When browsing for artwork online make sure your computer screen’s resolution is at the very maximum setting. This will help you to clear idea of what the artwork will look like when it arrives.
Decide which materials you want the artwork to be produced using; the choice is extensive so making your mind up helps to narrow your search somewhat.
