WaterMediaGallery.com Terms & Conditions
This stuff is pretty important so we recommend you read it thoroughly and don’t skip any parts as it may effect you later on.
1. Our Mission
1.1 Thank you for being part of WaterMediaGallery.com. We believe every artist should have an opportunity to participate in the art gallery experience of displaying and selling their work. Through WaterMediaGallery.com this experience is realized in a new and very unique way.
Unlike the commercial and private art gallery world, WaterMediaGallery.com does not presume to judge the artistry of any artist. You, as an artist, have the opportunity to put your very best paintings in your portfolio for the world to see. It is to your advantage that you provide photos of your artwork that depict as close a likeness to your painting as possible. Take a bit of extra time to be sure your photos are lightened and color corrected so they match your artwork as closely as possible when it is brightly lit. Crop and edit images so that they contain only the entire painting with no glare. We want your beautiful artwork to speak for itself!
We at WaterMediaGallery.com give art buyers an opportunity to explore an expansive variety of exceptional artwork. WaterMediaGallery.com buyers visit our site because they have a love of watercolor and watermedia. They care about your work and are curious about who made it and how you were inspired. Any bit of context you might want to share in your image description—where, when, why, how you painted your painting—allows your buyer to envision your creative process.
