The Art of Mock-Ups

I recently took a photo of my art on my kitchen wall- and it looked great in place! But it also got me thinking that seeing my work in context, is really powerful.

So, I’ve had some fun selecting rooms and working some photoshop magic of my art in place. By the way Photoshop is great for this and its really so much fun to make these.

I am in the process of building up my shop online and having mock ups I think is key. I personally love it when artists have these images and find Im more likely to buy their art. I believe this is because I get a preview of the color, scale and shape of the work in a way I can’t with just a flat image of the work itself.

What has your experience been with this? Do you work with Photoshop, or take pictures of your work in place?

I hope you enjoy! 

rachelurista.com • New Website! Now Live

It’s up and live….my new website! I designed it with Squarespace and am very pleased with the results. I finally have all my art images in one place, with easy to navigate menu bars and clean and tidy look. Check it out at rachelurista.com

I’ll be posting here only if I have big announcements, but my new work will be maintained on my website, facebook and instagram. Although Blogging wasn’t in my cards, I’ve loved the community and connections – its been fun! 🙂

I hope you will stay in touch with me at my instagram account or facebook.

Much love,
