3. Those who consider themselves to have well chosen objects, and understand a lot, make their own choices,
4.. This is only a Basis for a Guide.
5. The Rules can easily be broken to make it all work the way you want it.
E. 'Where do you put your Painting?'
- We all have our own ideas of what goes where.
Thankfully advice taken on board is sometimes healthy
1. The picture needs to fit in the room.
2. The effect of mounting board and frame.
3. Some people know exactly where it should go, others wait and see.
F. First thing to do.
1. Give the Art Work natural light if you can (avoid photos by windows, as do fade with time.)
2. Or place with framed view from doorway. Or where you look the most.
3. The best pictures to have most impact.
4. The room itself; Less is more in a room with a lot of items inside.
5. The size of the picture is important.
i. If small, fit in row of Art Works. A fitting place, even.
ii. If large or best picture, place at centre of room.
6. Work located around furniture, need to be centred.
7. Back of the room needs sentiment? possibly, the front of the room needs dynamism to stand out as statement.
8. Decide where you put your painting in your room. (In the most extreme cases, the room is decorated for its Art Works!)
9. Or sometimes, where you want it in advance.
10. Take your time... Enjoy
11. Paintings can be moved around, and adjusted until right. It is not the final decision until you are happy.
G. Rooms with space. - 'Easier decision!?'
1. Rooms with little in; more detail in pictures. More subject or narrative to be had.
2. Defined as a Male or Female room, or a balance for a couple.
3. Strong colour schemes add energy and happiness (one hopes).
4. Make it a centre piece. In main wall or above bed.
The size of the picture can be big or small to highlight space around picture or size of picture.
H. Place in a crowded room, - 'What do you do?'
1. Need to fill as if a family.
2. Less detail, more colour and simple line, or humour.
3. Be aware of portrait or landscape to compare with other pictures.
4. The Colour of the walls behind makes a difference, challenge yourself.
5. I.e. Interior design has taken hold in many modern houses. Match the picture with wall colour.
6. Match as bold with Complimentary Colours, such that it diverts from other items in room.
7. Match as Secondary Colour through picture, mounting board, frame and wall behind.
8. Nature of work; beauty and serene blend in easier.
9. Experimental, and confident subject matter, helps to be changed around until found the right place.
10. Move the Painting around every so often until satisfied.
I. The Mount Board – some choose 'None'
1. Compliments the picture, gives a sense of place, proportion and sense.
2. Traditionally, the bottom of mount board is slightly longer than top.
3. The Choice of colour; Cream, White, Grey etc... is up to you. The lighter the Mount board the lighter the feel of the Painting.
4. Work with the Painting if hard lines/perspectives etc... provide for larger mounting board.
5. Link the mount board as a break between Frame and Painting. The more colourful the picture the less the need for a bigger mount board.
J. The Frame – some 'Avoid' Frames.
1. DIY is always a temptation to reduce cost and show skill. Though unless skilled and quick to work, it is often time
consuming and with mixed results.
2. Remember the material you use: Metal, Gold, Silver or Wood etc... Help define the Art Work.
Framing Specialists know your needs, give good advice and if bought in bulk offer better discounts.
You need to talk to them in the right way.
3. Want to buy a cheap or expensive Frame. Can take a long time or impulsively just buy to satisfy instinct and cost.
Frames now available from Specialist Framers or big Wholesalers chains.
4. I tend to think, the lighter the colour of frame, the less heavy the picture is.
5. If Anxious, ask a Friend/Partner to help choose; sometimes, they might have extra insight.
In the extremes, the Artist paints the frame itself as part of picture. Then you have to buy them both.
6. Remember it is your choice and you can change it if necessary.
7. The picture itself if very dynamic in perspective, colour and form, this could determine your choice with a darker frame.
8. 'The choice is yours and once done be satisfied, you have made the effort.'
.K. Art As Investment:
1. The Saleability of Art Work is considered as an Investment for the future both Commercially and as a Possession in a Collection.
2. The emotional impact of Painting cannot be underestimated.
3. All Paintings have sentiment and sentimental value which builds the character of the Home, Office or Public Place.
4. The Art Work offers comfort and a standard that makes for a status for the owner.
5. Art Work is Affordable at this stage with Low Commissions, but in the future there is no knowing what the value will be.
