Bestselling Watercolors. Analytical Research

Irina Sztukowski art

Continuing my research of the bestselling watercolor paintings, I want to focus this time on what was selling in May and June of this year. Surprising enough more than 70 percent of the painting that were sold from my website www.artirina.com were all about food! Fruits, berries, vegetables were the Kings and the Queens of the sales on my little watercolor Farmers Market those months. The quartet of the bestselling watercolor illustrations above is quite bright and informative. It pretty much has all what a good housewife might want to have on her kitchen walls to inspire the members of the family to eat right :).

On another hand, the single apples and pears group was liked by my Art Collector from Chandler, Arizona probably for its simplicity:

This painting quartet contains some of my bestsellers that were part of the Marmalade Labels project and Jam Labels project. The Red Apple painting was even featured once in People Magazine one day! No wonder the art collectors choice was given  to this watercolor bestselling combination.

A couple more edible bestselling paintings that I want to include here were as sweet as the first two above, yet they do have different feeling to them as the fruit and vegetables are so diverse here.  Even now these little bestsellers water my mouth just looking at them:

Farmers Market painting

One Art Collector didn't want to buy whole bunch of Farmers Market watercolor produce and stopped his choice at just one Eggplant. but it does look so great on the plain white canvas! Thank you so much to a dear customer from Idaho Falls, ID !!

But not only clear white background for the bestselling watercolor illustrations was popular that period. One of my best selling classical still life paintings, Onion Ginger And Lemon, went to the state of Idaho to an absolutely different customer the same month:

There were just a few sales with flowers from my Floral Gallery that month. The rest of the bestsellers were quite romantic watercolor landscape paintings
I guess the beginning of the Summer brought that kind of feeling and customers decided to get more romantic :)

Besides one of my absolutely favorite landscapes with Italian small town of Positano (thanks to the Art Collector from Flamingham, Massachusetts for adding bestselling points to this popular watercolor) :

...the art collectors from Georgia and Colorado decided to purchase some beautiful landscapes to add to their home decor.
The spontaneous impresionistic bestseller with Carmel By The Sea watercolor paining:

And romantic bestselling watercolor (from different websites of mine) with the Bridge and Bicycle at the Marina:

The last but not least bestseller in my analytical research of the monthly sales is one of my most favorite and romantic ones that has Golden Gate Bridge on the background.
I called this bestselling watercolor Two Love Birds.
The art collector from Nesconset, state of New York chose classical black frame and white mat to garnish it:

Bestselling Art.... Monthly Analysis

bestseller by Irina Sztukowski

As I promised to my art followers, I continue to analyse the art sales and place a few bestsellers of the month on my blog. January and February sales report was placed a week ago, and if you are interested it can be found here ( Art That Sells post) 

Now it is time to talk about bestsellers of the month for March and April. To my surprise there were plenty of abstract paintings sold those months. The one above, Dancing Watercolor, was the bestselling abstract on my RedBubble website.

My main website www.artirina.com  was selling abstract art like crazy as well. 
Here are just a few of them:

I am so happy that Art Collectors appreciate the abstract art for decorating their houses. I was also pleased that the abstract bestselling watercolor found a good home in the form of pillows. 

Here is one of the bestsellers:

Yet the portraits were not left behind. When I researched the bestselling art of those months, I realized, that quite a few portraits were purchased by art collectors.

Here are is one, for example, from the RedBubble Gallery:

And needless to say, I was not surprised at all that the same website sold again The Girl And The Ocean famous watercolor bestseller of mine :)

Another portrait in the seascape setting was sold by my ImageKind Gallery:

And another, this time silly portrait of Chameleon was purchased by the Art Collector from Williston, North Dakota. This cute curious animal became such a bestseller in the last few years:

So, concluding that most of the sales were abstract and portraits bestsellers, I also want to add that Italian theme, e.g. Italian landscapes and even digital artworks were also quite popular those months.
For example, Siena Italy painting hits the sales records again:

As well as my bestselling photograph of Venice which I touched with the digital brush, was looking so nice in the new frame selected by the Art Collector from Orlando, Florida:

Art That Sells. Bestsellers Of The Month

art that sells bestseller of the month

My followers often ask me which paintings ( e.g what format or what themes) are selling the best. They are also interested if I have mostly sold art locally or internationally. 

To explain all of that I decided to share just a few sales of the first months of this year. I will try to analyse what art is preferred by the local public; and, what art mostly goes to international art collectors. Though, it is quite random. For example, the Iris painting above was sold quite a bit, and geography of the sales is from Florida to California in the US, to Abu Dabi (Arab Emirats) the art collector who bought this artwork of Iris on the stretched canvas this February for example.

Another International Art Collector purchased this bestselling artwork of Inspiration Point, Orinda CA in January of this year:

I am glad that our local beauty is now exposed in the house of Auckland city in New Zealand!

Although, the local Art Collectors of mine, specifically from California ( towns: West Hills, Sunnyvalle, and Dana Point) made me very happy purchasing the following bestselling watercolors:

Siena, Italy watercolor painting

Poppy Field - Elongated Format Painting

Red Poppy Field - decorative landscape painting. 

Most of my customers were purchasing landscape paintings from my Landscape Gallery. However, some still life bestselling paintings were not left behind.
For example my famous Blueberry artwork that became last year bestseller Number One in many departments such Licensing Art, Art Collections, Jam Labels illustrations and more, found its home this time in Nashville, TN:

And another bestselling still life of mine, Two Pears, went to a new home in Goodyear, AZ:
art that sells
The Art Collector purchased this artwork on the stretched canvas. And, coincidentally, the original was also painted on watercolor canvas as well. I am glad the realistic approach and the Old Masters style is appreciated by my customers.

I am also so happy that the floral compositions became bestselling artworks in those two months. 
For example a simple bouquet of Ranunculus flowers was sold to the customer from Renton, state of Washington:

Three Roses Bouquet watercolor was appreciated by the Art Collector from Lubbock, Texas and became bestseller in January:

And another floral painting bestseller, one of my favorite by the way, the Rose Painting, was sold to the Art Collector from West Palm Beach, Florida:

But because I sell art not only from my website www.artirina.com but through some other venues, such for example ImageKind or RedBubble; sometimes I don't even know what bestselling art went to what customer. But I am still happy that artworks of mine find a good home. At least I know what art sells there the best.
RedBubble for example established a super new bestseller, the Ruby Slippers. Just in the last few months it was sold more than several dozens of times:

And ImageKind really started selling lots of bicycles. These few are my favorite bestsellers for example:

So speaking of the art that sells I guess the answer is that any artwork can become bestselling when the artist works hard and puts it out to the world. The World will appreciate it, and the art collectors will find you.  I am certainly grateful that my customers do :)
