Does the amount of time you spend on an artwork reflect in its price? Is there a good time for money ratio?

DULK-MentorMe March-Melting Panda  Does the amount of time you spend on an artwork reflect in its price? Is there a good time for money ratio?

Does the amount of time you spend on an artwork reflect in its price? Is there a good time for money ratio?

DULK: The price of an artwork depends on the size and also the artist cache. Also, the time that everyone spends with an artwork affects the price, because the same size could have a little bit different price depending of the details of the piece. This translates as: more detailed, more time spent.

In my case, I think I have a good ratio of time/money because for me it’s worth every minute I spend with remember every canvas and mural I painted ever because every one has a story that I would like to tell.

Does the amount of time you spend on an artwork reflect in its price? Is there a good time for money ratio?

Rose Freymuth-Frazier: My paintings are priced more or less by size but they take a lot of time and effort. Just because something is smaller or larger doesn’t necessarily mean there will be a direct size/price ratio.

Adrienne Stein-Persephone-mentorme march - Does the amount of time you spend on an artwork reflect in its price? Is there a good time for money ratio?

Does the amount of time you spend on an artwork reflect in its price? Is there a good time for money ratio?

Adrienne Stein: I price my work by the square inch because it is a good objective way to price paintings and usually the amount of time I spend on it is determined by the size anyway.
