I thought it was interesting when our son was getting into advanced art, then he was doing all kinds of amazing paintings in an environment with strict temperature control and humidity levels, and our son was explaining how a combination humidifier/dehumidifier device had to be used in different spaces for different types of artwork.
He said for the most part, the humidity levels couldn’t be too high or low.
High humidity would cause particular art pieces to bleed, warp, grow mold and become ruined, but low humidity levels would cause different art pieces to become too dry so they would crack and break. He started getting into the pastel art which he had been finally working on. He was especially interested in the oil pastels because the paintings came out so rich with vivid colors and hues. When seeing some of the artwork that was displayed at different events, my wife and I were seriously impressed with the talent of our child. He said he wants to do a lot more of this in the future, creating his own art in an environment with ideal temperature control. He wants to own his own studio and display his masterpieces and fetch some of the highest prices possible for his art, but we know he can do it, but I do hope that he learn other things as well, so he can have numerous sources of income. Selling art is great, but we have to be realistic that it can be difficult to make money, but perhaps down the road it won’t be so difficult with more experience in the art world.
