Investment without Proper Research
One of the worst things to do while looking for a good artwork to invest in is not doing proper research. This is true even to Australian indigenous artwork. That artwork field also has its own history and each artwork presented by different artists has its own history. If you become interested in an artwork and buy it because the one selling it tells you it has been a part of an interesting period of the indigenous history even if it has not you will buy the artwork if you have not done proper research.
Not Determining the Worth of an Artist
When there are Australian indigenous paintings for sale you have to always pay attention to the artwork as well as the artist. Every artist has an influence over the value of his or her creation. Your inability to correctly predict the worth of an artist can pave way for a bad investment. For example, think that you are trying to choose between two works of two emerging artists. If you have done your homework right and have been in the field for a considerable time, you will be able to determine investing on who will be the better and more profitable choice without losing your money in the transaction.
