Visualizing artwork on your walls is not always easy. Many decorating companies offer a service that allows you to place artwork on your own walls, virtually so you can get an idea of how it looks.
Visualizing size and color
When you place an image in a mock-up situation, it can help you determine the size of print you need. It can also show you if the colors will work in your particular room (if you are using a virtual room mock-up of your own space).
You can create different arrangements with more than one piece to see how they work together, or not.
Where to go to find room mock-ups
Some artist sites automatically have this as a function directly. They allow you to choose the piece you’re looking at, upload an image of the wall from your home and place the piece of art. Other artists create their own mock-ups using room mock-up graphics from various sources.
Here are a few places you can check out that I’ve come across. Some offer free room images, others are pay per downloaded images and some are subscription-based.
Personally, if you ask me about a specific image, send me a photo of your room and where you are looking at hanging art, I’d be happy to help you out with that. Send your photo and information here.
If you don’t see an image already in my galleries or in the View Art on Walls gallery that you are interested in, just let me know and I will upload that image and create a mock-up for you.
Art is personal
I’ve said that before and I’ll continue to say that more than likely. It’s true. Our tastes in subject matter, colors, styles and our personal spaces are all different. What works for one will not work for another. Try things out first by visualizing the pieces on your wall first.
As always, if you have any questions do not hesitate to contact me. I’m always happy to help.
