Art Production Tips to help your project go smoothly

Whether you’re using water color, acrylic, oils, or mixed media, these tips will help you in making your art so the digitization process is as smooth as possible and therefore your works will be easier to sell too.

Size Selection

Starting out with a common size can make a lot of sense. For example, 11×14 inches is a very common size for frames. 16×20 and 16×24 are also very common. These are related to 8×10 and 8×12 as these are the exact same aspect ratios as 16×20 and 16×24. So, if you create something small and want to size it up that’s very much a possibility. The opposite is also very much possible.

However, never fear, custom sizes are my specialty. Whatever size you want, if it fits on my 44 inch wide printer I’ll be happy to make it for you. If not (such as custom printed wall paper) I’ll tile it for you which means it’ll be printed in sections.

Consider the borders

If you have important compositional elements or some interesting details that are flirting with the edge of your painting it might get cropped off in the digitization process. Allow for between 1/8 to 1/4 of an inch to be cropped off the work in the digitization process. Keep those signatures away from the very edge and other items too. If it’s hugely important that it stays in the final reproduction it shouldn’t be riding the edge.

Consider the texture of your original paper or canvas

Thicker, richer paper will have a life of its own. And this can show up in unpleasant ways in a reproduction. However, this is really on an issue if some area is left unpainted or if it’s extremely lightly painted. As needed I can always minimize the effect of these areas of an image that are left unpainted in your original. But this can be difficult to get right if your painting doesn’t have clearly defined borders. Therefore, it’s my recommendation to either be sure to paint the entire paper or canvas or make the borders very clearly defined so post-production edits go much smoother and you get a result you’re happy with.
