Find your style

An original style can make up for just about any flaw in your painting and will more often than not determine the shape of your career and commercial success as an artist. Marta Dahlig shares her experience and knowledge to help you find your style...

An original and consistent ‘signature’ style is usually something that every artist has to develop at their own pace. It’s achieved via a combination of many factors, such as technique, colour themes, subject choice and symbolism, and is slowly developed over months or even years. There are no instant solutions or shortcuts to immediately achieving your own style, but there are, however, a few factors that, once analysed and put into consideration, might help you focus on your artistic aims.

So, how do you make yourself recognisable? The advice here is obviously only a guideline, as a signature style is a personal thing, but I will, however, outline the elements that distinguish one artwork from another and point out things you can consider and analyse about your own art to make yourself more recognisable and broaden your artistic horizons.
