One Painting, 5 Epic Posts (How to Repost the Same Art & Get Amazing Results!)
We've all heard the Social Media Gurus spout the familiar "post every day!" advice, and while it is good and useful (and will actually yield great results), the thought is completely exhausting!
How on earth are we supposed to create a new piece of art every single day?!
Take a deep breath, 'cause I have some awesome news for you.
You don't have to create new content with every single new post - it is totally okay (and actually encouraged) to reuse your existing content and paintings!
I'm going to show you how to create 5 amazing posts from one single piece of artwork. Let's go!
Want to learn about an extra 4 post types (that means 9 unique post types for one painting, oh my!) AND matching caption ideas that will get your audience super excited and passionate about your work?
1. The Scan
A high-quality, high-resolution photograph or scan of your artwork, with even lighting and accurate coloration. This post shows your art in its truest form, and is a great representation of the masterpiece that you have created.
2. Cropped Detail Shot
A close-cropped photo of the artwork, showing tight detail or showing off the beautiful texture of the paint or canvas. These can look great when taken from an angle too, with the edges blurred into the distance.
Bonus Idea: You can easily get a few of these cropped detail shots from each painting, so go wild!
This is one of my favorite post types due to its effectiveness for boosting engagement and its flexibility!
It works best if there are artistic or environmental elements around, such as art supplies, brushes, the painting is resting on an easel, etc. It can be in progress or finished, and can be beautifully complimented by a clear white space behind the painting to make it pop!
Artist spaces can be very beautiful, and mysterious to non-artists, so lean into this.
Now is the time to let your process shine! Use a camera or your Smartphone to film yourself painting, either recording a time lapse of a painting coming together or a real-time video of your carefully placed brush strokes.
5. Staged in The Home
This style of photo is great to show off the scale and texture of the artwork. Staging it in a home also gives potential customers an idea of how amazing this piece will look in their home which can lead to a sale!
This style works best when photographed during daylight hours to give the scene a warm and inviting glow.
There you go! Gone are the days of frantically painting just so you have fresh content to post.
