"Turn Small Warm-Ups into Hot, Fast Sellers."

Welcome Back to Another BobBlast!

This BobBlast is about how I turn my warm-up paintings - the small, practice paint sketches - into fast sellers.

I call this goofing-around-time... practice time. I don't expect to actually produce a great piece of art. This takes the pressure off and puts the pleasure back in!

I do multiples of the same image - over and over. Warm-ups of every subject: Fruits, Vegetables, Landscapes, Floral and more. After awhile, repeating the same image, painting can be like having muscle memory.

This Blast shows a wall of warm-up paintings with a variety of repeated images, including different approaches to ordinary subjects. Each one will be varnished, signed, photographed, mounted and recorded into inventory. Then off they go - Cha Ching!

And just a reminder... all my BobBlasts are archived on my website and my YouTube Channel. We post new studio tips weekly that offer real content, substance and useful techniques that work for me. And they're free!


Thanks again for watching and telling your friends! We strive for short, substantial, informative bits to help jumpstart your time in your studio.
