Tim’s Top Tips: #1 Check your units.

Recently, I bought a painting from China. Only spent a fiver on it, a mass produced painting of a sailing ship.

Rested on a newspaper to get a sense of scale, it's a painting of a ship. Classy.

I thought my room needed more pictures, and it’s a pleasant enough painting, nicely sized to go on my wall without being too over the top.

So I ordered another, this time from a different website, I chose a well known painting this time, “The Scream” by Edvard Munch.

Today it arrived.

Perhaps it's just a tad overpackaged..

Nope, it's massive.

Where I had thought I was buying a 24 x 36 centimetre oil painting, roughly the size of an A4 piece of a paper, I was in fact buying a 24 x 36 inch oil painting. Four times the size of a newspaper (which again I’ve placed underneath to show scale).


It does somewhat dominate my room, and it does give out something of an overwhelming sense of fear and anxiety, but it’s not bad for £25 quid…
