I really need some advice on this Sad I don't remember the exact canvas size, it's from walmart and it's a bit bigger than a regular piece of computer paper, but not the biggest canvas they had there. I wanna sell it, but I want to know your guys' opinion...

It's my very first canvas painting ever, I usually just use pencil/pen stuff like that. I don't know how to price things like this :/

Size matters. How long did it take you? At what price can you feel good about parting with it? Art and the pricing of it is highly subjective.

It's about the size of an average school binder, I spent about 5 hours total on it. I don't know what price I can feel good about, which is why I was wanting some suggestions Sad I realize it's subjective, I just want a few opinions. I.E. how much would someone be WILLING to pay for it before they thought it was too much

Based on the size and what I've seen other artists selling original art for, I would put it between 50-75$. Of course, this amount changes if you have a big fan base. Generally, artists offer prints of original work for around 15 bucks (which is much more affordable). But the question comes down to, how badly do you want to sell it? And how fast?

I realize that this doesn't exactly answer your question, but it's hard to say because I don't buy art (I make it too  Smiley )

I would do something like materials + your time to make. You would of course have to figure out about the percentage of a tube of paint and charge for the percentage used, and then a flat rate for other materials that will eventually have to be replaced (paint brushes, ect.). Which all sounds a little complicated. Unless the materials were highly priced, I think 50-75$ sounds resonable for a one of a kind painting. If you were going to reproduce this or have before then I think considerably less.
