How to Buy Art Online (Virtual Meeting with the Artist)

Fox paintings on box canvas with frames by Caroline Skinner Art

We live in an age where we are becoming more comfortable with buying online. Doing your weekly grocery shopping on a supermarket website is one thing, but it may feel more strange buying original paintings for your home online. You may not be clear about how to buy art online, and what to do if it isn’t quite how you imagined it. Understandably, you want to see your chosen painting in person first and imagine how it will look in your home.  

Benefits of Buying Art Online

There are many benefits to buying original art online:

– You can take your time browsing art collections from the comfort of your own home;

– Buying directly from the artist often gets you the best price as they have fewer commission costs;

– In the UK you benefit from online selling regulations. You can try the art at home, and if you change your mind you can simply send it back for a full refund;

– You can contact the artist and have a chat about how they work.  I offer a free video call so you can see the painting you like from all angles, on a wall etc, as I explain in this video link.

Book Your Free Video Call

If you have fallen in love with one of my animal paintings, but you’re not sure about its size or whether the colours are right for you, let’s talk. Maybe you want to chat about framing options or where to hang the painting for best effect.  Perhaps you want to know more about how I painted it, or how to buy my art online. Maybe you’d like a personal virtual tour of my art studio so you can tell your friends how you found your colourful animal painting. You might want to find out what other options are available, or discuss whether to book a commissioned painting just for you or for a special person in your life.

Whatever questions you have about one of my paintings, I’m more than happy to talk to you. And there’s absolutely no obligation to buy.
