Clarify and Check the Photos of Paintings Online Before Buying them- Is a Blue in the painting a Blue or a Purple!

Photographs of Paintings Online, so many , vibrant, beautiful photos of paintings are displayed online on many art galleries and websites for sale. You want to buy a painting and you want a blue artwrok to go along with your living room decor, and you know just which artist or which famous online art gallery you trust and you go ahead and buy the costly painting, just to your surprise the artwrok is a purple and not a blue! 
The internet gives us the pleasure of viewing many artworks from the comfort of our homes. we get such a wide choice,  in size, colour schemes and styles of paintings from different artists and also price ranges. Your viewing and selection of an artwork totally depends on the image put up by the artists or online art galleries.
Most important step before you make the final payment click,  think before going in for a purchase only on the first look of the picture online. Whenever an art gallery or art dealer puts up images and photographs of any artwork, it is always done in high resolution. There is ample lighting and photographs are clicked in controlled environments. Look at the advertisements today,  the photo shoot ads of film stars, how you see their glowing flawless skin, long shiny hair and perfect body! any person who has knowledge of photo editing and photo shop programs knows very well that these images are photo shopped to perfection. So also may be the case regarding photographs of original paintings displayed on online art gallery websites. 
Any painting will look different in natural sunlight and very much different in artificial lights. In art galleries also when we see an artwork the top lighting or floor lamps accentuate or highlight the artworks. The same painting when put up on our wall does not give the same effect. The best advice for any buyer would be to choose a painting in natural light. Since lighting modes in homes and offices differ for every individual buyer, it is best to check out personally the colours that are used on the artworks especially if you are very choosy and want specific shades in your painting. Like some people do not like black, for them it is a symbol of death but the same person may like darkest blue or darkest brown! If you are one of these types then better email the artist for some more close up, and detail photographs of the paintings, I usually share many close ups, and also with modern decor the artworks to give my art buyers an idea of how the paintings will look on their walls. In fact many art lovers do up their decor keeping in mind my artwork and surrounding the decor idea along this concept. 
Take a look at the paintings, view it and see what response it emits. Try to avoid emotional buying, though we all know buying artworks is also a passion for some and its all a matter of heart! The standard procedure for purchase from any art website, is to order the painting and pay online, and when on delivery the buyer is not satisfied with the work they can return it immediately though there are some charges and total money may not be refunded. These ethics are followed by many artists and art galleries and the buyer has to read terms and conditions of deal carefully before making a final purchase. Usually there is a time frame of given period of seven days where in the purchased artwork can be rejected. 
In some case it may also be the opposite case. Many times the strokes and colours are better in the original artwork( this happens all the time with my paintings! My art buyers love the spiritually rich energy when they touch my art, and experience a deep healing by physically receiving my healing art)  Some of the artists who are not camera savvy do not know how to take high resolution images. This does not mean that the artworks are dull or boring. the same artwork may look very good when viewed directly as you may get the feel of the canvas and the rich colours on personal look of it.You can also send online inquiry and discuss with the artist and online art gallery or art broker about the colours, size and condition of the artwork. If you live in the same city you can also visit the art gallery and view the artworks directly. This will help you understand the artist well and the artwork that you have selected for purchase.

Art is an aesthetic experience, completely personal, and from the heart,  and I personally feel photographs do not do right justice to any painting, but it has become so easy now to buy art from the comforts of your home that most people are buying original paintings online, by checking the history of the artist and their collection of artworks. I try hard to get the best click and all my paintings photographs are clicked in my home studio, in natural lighting only.  Some online art websites also mention to clarify this point, that photographs are only a picture of the painting and original colors may sometimes differ on direct look. Some complex abstracts are tricky to click. Also reflective shiny paintings never give out great photos.  photograph I took of my latest painting, the colour used was rich ultra marine blue, (my favorite) and what comes up in the photograph? a purple shade! I always clarify every technique, materials, size of the paintings,  and explain in descriptions.

So just drop an email and check more close ups, and details of the paintings and experience  the richness of adding up healing art to your lives! 
Remember buying art online is one happy experience, I read with so much excitement my art buyers emails on sending a painting who wait impatiently to receive their bundles of joy! make this a happy experience and check the colors of the paintings you buy online!
