What is the best way to show the artwork online?

This is, of course, a question.

On the one hand, flickering and an abundance of additional photographs distract from the actual work.

On the other hand, a painting is, in a sense, an object, and here it is already important what surface, scale in the interior, there is a frame or not, and there are many other details. How to show all this in order to support the viewer in his intention to purchase a painting?

During the 15 years of our gallery's existence in an old, poorly adapted space in the center of Prague, it seems to me that we have learned to "show" paintings. But online?

So,you have to think.

Here are some of the presentation photos to share with you:

1. Painting in the interior, next to a chair, wardrobe or table.

2. Framed painting, if any.

3. Painting on a working easel.

4. Painting at an angle to show the side and surface.

5. A fragment of the work

6. Painting on the wall

They appeared under the still deeply sleeping tree of white magnolia first. Two daring groups of snowdrops on cold and gray earth in a city garden. This is a time of hunches of spring, when, it seems, even the birds are not quite ready yet, but they are. Confident that spring will be, they dance their short spring dance.

Of course, I don’t break them to paint. At best, I take the photographs I need in the botanical sense and carefully bring my fragile enthusiastic impressions to the studio to paint them on canvas.

The TOPIC of FEBRUARY is DRAWING:

✏️⏳ I have made plenty of sketches and drawings with models a few years ago, almost 30 gestures. Just for refresh my skills.
After that I closed the folder with all these drawings and forgot about them for 2 years.
It seems time has come to return to them this February.
Still winter now, there is almost no sun in Prague, what should I do?
Work with drawings, arrange them, try different materials and papers…It seemed to me that this is the best solution for today.
So I play and enjoy the seeming lightness:
