How exciting- You purchased an original watercolor painting that you love ! But now what? How do you care for it?
Well first, let’s agree that you do need to take care of it. The simple fact that your painting is created with water soluble products on paper makes it fragile. But don’t get scared – here are few tips to make your painting last a lifetime.
- Most important- your painting should be framed by a professional. Putting your watercolor behind glass ( or plexiglass) will protect it from outside elements such as dust, humidity and sticky little hands.
- Do not hang your painting in direct sunlight. Even though professional artist materials were used for your painting the sun can do severe damage in fading your painting. Best suggestion would be to rotate your artwork through your home.
- Not all environments are suitable for hanging original artwork. Humidity in a bathroom, grease in a kitchen or soot from a fireplace can damage your art. Be thoughtful when choosing a good location.
And above all – ENJOY!! Art is created to enhance our lives – live with it everyday!
