7 Steps Tutorial with Pictures on How to Display Your Artwork in a Room, Part 2


I was planning on posting this tutorial next month as I am still learning. But when Dawn from Brush of Dawn Art commented on my Facebook page yesterday asking how am I displaying my art in a room, I decided to share what I know, even though it’s probably not the perfect way to do it.

Basically, it is the same way I use to Create a Canvas Mock-up but instead of using the white background I am using an image I bought from Etsy. You can find the image at this link.

Because She Loves Roses – Limited Edition Print.

Here are the steps:

  1. Open the wall/room image in Photoshop.
  2. Drag and drop your artwork image on top of the room/wall image.
  3. Adjust the size of the artwork image. In this example, I changed the image scale to 50%, don’t forget to select the Maintain aspect ratio. Then click Enter.
  4. Select the Move Tool, and place your artwork image where you want it to be.
  5. Click on fx and choose Drop Shadow, you can match your settings to the ones I am using if you want.
  6. While you are in the same window, add Bevel & Emboss.
  7. Save as.png

These Two Paintings Will Be Available as Limited Edition Prints


I did some retouch on Flowers in a Bag painting.

Limited Edition Art Print


After some reading and a lot of thought. I decided to start selling my art prints as limited edition instead of an open edition. I am thinking canvas prints in three sizes, 12″x16″, 16″x20″ and 18″x24″. I am still not sure about the 16″x20″ and the square format because I have to crop my artwork photo.

Not all of my paintings will be available as limited edition, though. I will make another post about which painting will be available as limited edition print. For now, I ordered a sample for the painting Because She Loves Roses to see how it looks as a canvas print and to see if I need to take better photos for printing.

It is always exciting to paint something you never painted before.

Sneak Peek of Painting #36


I woke up early in this morning to work on painting #36. I have been busy the past few days setting up my print shop and did not have much time for painting. It is 4 am here in Jeddah, and I am hoping this painting will be done by noon.
